Northeast of China is one of three major steady snow cover areas in China. Monitoring spatial-temporal changes of snow cover is very important in water resources management and snow disaster evaluation and prediction. Daily Terra and Aqua MODIS snow cover products are used to produce two basic dataset including Terra/Aqua daily combination (MODISDC) and flexible multiday combination (MODISMC), and the thematic snow cover data including snow cover day (SCD), snow cover onset date (SCOD), and snow cover melting date (SCMD) in the last decade from 2004 to 2013. Compared with in situ observations, the daily and flexible multiday combinations achieve overall accuracy of 47.51% and 76.52 % respectively, more than 34.45% of MODIS Terra and 30.57% of MODIS Aqua under all‐sky conditions.Browse
