The following products are only samples to show how actual products may look like. We do not pretend to have made products with completely correct values of all the variables. There may also be some variables missing.

Snow Cover Area (SCA)

Average, minimum, and maximum snow cover, in the middle, left, and right images, respectively. Snow-figure2a.png Snow-figure2b.png

Fractional snow cover

Climate change indicator products

As an example of an indicator product for snow cover the figure below shows the snow covered area for the northern hemisphere, averaged for the summer (June-August), for the years 1972-2008.
