This data set comprises a time series of annual snow cover data for the Northern Hemisphere (covering land primarily above 45 degrees North) from 1972 to 2000. Data are presented for land areas that exhibited snow cover in each of the 29 years. Variables are the week of snow disappearance, the week of snow cover onset, and the duration of the snow-free period. In addition, summary statistics for each parameter are provided. These are grids of the mean and the standard deviation for the three parameters.
