Afghanistan: Snow Cover 29 November - 31 December, 2012 vs 2011 (as of 31 Dec 2012)

Notes:
The snow cover product is a classification of 8-days snow covered areas created by a synthesis of satellite data (MODIS MOD10).
Snow cover from ITHACA - low snow persistence: pixels that in the last 8 days resulted as snow covered for a percentage of weighted days varying from 10 to 30 % of the considered period;

  • medium snow persistence: pixels that in the last 8 days resulted as snow covered for a percentage of weighted days varying from 30 to 60 % of the considered period;

  • high snow persistence: pixels that in the last 8 days resulted as snow covered for a percentage of weighted days varying from 60 to 100 % of the considered period.

  • The purpose of this map is to show snow cover difference
