Landsat Collection 2 Level-3 Fractional Snow Covered Area science product

December 20, 2022

The Landsat Collection 2 Level-3 Fractional Snow Covered Area science product indicates the percentage of pixels covered by snow for Landsat 4–8 imagery. Landsat’s spatial resolution offers the capability to map snow cover patterns across topographically complex mountainous regions. Snow cover is spatially and temporally variable and is often concentrated in remote or inaccessible land regions, making spaceborne remote sensing the most feasible approach to measure and monitor snow cover change.
