GlobSnow Technical Documents
The Simple Cloud Detection Algorithm (SCDA) has been developed withinGlobSnow-1/2 project. The algorithm is developed by Dr. S. Metsämäki (SYKE) and applies simple thresholding for various optical and thermal channels to detect clouds on various terrain during different seasons. The methodology is well suited to detect clouds even on snow covered surfaces, which is a known challenge for optical remote sensing.
The SWE ATBD gives a detailed explanation of the algorithms applied for GlobSnow-2 SWE v2.0 retrieval.
The SE ATBD gives a detailed explanation of the algorithms applied for GlobSnow-2 SE v2.0 retrieval.
The following IGOS and GCOS documents have been considered as a key foundation for the requirements of the GlobSnow snow products:
