MODIS/Terra Snow Cover 8-Day L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG V061

Metadata Updated: July 9, 2024

This global level-3 (L3) data set provides the maximum percentage of snow-covered land and persistent cloud-covered land observed over eight-days, within 0.05° (approx. 5 km) MODIS climate modeling grid (CMG) cells. Percentages are computed from snow cover observations in the 'MODIS/Terra Snow Cover 8-Day L3 Global 500m SIN Grid' data set (DOI:10.5067/MODIS/MOD10A2.061).

The terms "Version 61" and "Collection 6.1" are used interchangeably in reference to this release of MODIS data.
