Introduction Snow cover is among the most important of the earth’s surface characteristics that influence surface radiation, energy, and hydrologic budgets. It is one of the key factors to consider in the atmospheric circulation, runoff modeling, numerical weather forecasting, and climate change studies. Because the information on snow cover is needed for various weather and climate applications, the accurate monitoring of this component of the earth’s surface is an important and pressing issue
