Description

This dataset provides the last day of spring snow cover for most of Alaska and the Yukon Territory for 2000 through 2016. The data are based on the MODIS daily snow cover fraction product (MODSCAG) and are provided at 500-m resolution. Pixels in the daily snow cover fraction grids from April 1 through July 31 were flagged as "Snow" if the snow fraction exceeded 0.15, resulting in a time series of binary daily snow cover grids for each year. The annual last day of spring snow for each pixel was identified by day of the year ranging from 91 (April 1) to 183 (July 2).
