SusHi-Wat - Monthly maps of snow cover

<div>These data were generated for the project Sustaining Himalayan Water Resources in a Changing Climate (SusHi-Wat), which aims at improving our understanding on how water is stored in, and moves through, a Himalayan river system in northern India.</div><div><br></div>The data set contains a list of images (GeoTIFF format) corresponding to monthly maps of dry snow and wet snow for a Himalayan river basin. The maps were obtained by combining satellite remote sensing data from Sentinel-1 and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS).<div><br><div>The image resolution is about 500m.</div><div>The coordinate system is EPSG:4326</div><div>The possible pixel values are:</div><div>0: no snow</div><div>1-100: wet snow cover fraction</div><div>101-200: dry snow cover fraction with an offset of 100</div><div>240: missing Sentinel-1 data</div><div>250: pixel wrongly identified as wet snow by sentinel-1 (false positives)</div><div>255: fill value</div><div><br></div></div>
