Seasonal Variability of Northern Hemisphere Snow Extent Using Visible Satellite Data *

  title={Seasonal Variability of Northern Hemisphere Snow Extent Using Visible Satellite Data *},
  author={David A. Robinson and Allan Frei},
In this paper we use a satellite-derived data set to explore spatial and temporal variations of snow extent across Northern Hemisphere continents during the last three decades. These weekly visible-wavelength satellite maps of Northern Hemisphere snow extent produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration constitute the longest consistently-derived satellite record of any environmental variable. We document the considerable intra-annual variability of snow extent, and show that… CONTINUE READING
