The use of satellite remote sensing for the mapping of snow-cover characteristics has a long-lasting history reaching back until the 1960s. Because snow cover plays an important role in the Earth's climate system, it is necessary to map snow-cover extent and snow mass in both high temporal and high spatial resolutions. This task can only be achieved by the use of remotely sensed data. Many different sensors have been used in the past decades with various algorithms and respective accuracies… Expand
