EDO 10-day Snow Masks (based on VIIRS, version 1.0.0)

Collection: DROUGHT : Drought Observatories datasets 

Description

The Snow Masks used in the European Drought Observatory (EDO) are a collection of time-varying binary spatial layers (one for each 10-day period of the year) used to depict the location and extent of snow on the ground. The input data

for calculating the snow masks is the NASA VNP10A1 product (https://nsidc.org/data/vnp10a1/versions/1). Data values are 0: Snow-free, 1: Snow-covered.
