Short summary
The current collections of the NASA snow-cover data products generated from the MODIS and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) satellite instruments are described. Revisions in the MODIS snow cover algorithm increased accuracy, and the data content of products is increased from previous collection. The VIIRS algorithm and data product are very similar to those of MODIS. The objective of generating similar products is to enable the creation of a snow-cover extent climate-data record.
