pointwise observations are multiple in situ snow courses along a predefined transect. These are available from several national and regional agencies ( Haberkorn 2019 ) and provide more representative estimates on a regional scale. The amount of snow course data is, however, even more limited in time and space; thus, they are more often used as reference data. Regional to hemispheric estimation of SWE and snow mass has been obtained since the 1980s from standalone passive microwave observations (e

. With its onboard Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) and 13-channel GPM Microwave Imager (GMI), the GPM satellite extends into future decades the global surveillance of precipitation provided until 2014 by the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite and broadens coverage to higher latitudes, where many of Earth’s snow-covered mountain ranges are located. GPM also serves as a reference for other satellites carrying a variety of microwave imaging or sounding radiometers [see Hou et
