MODIS (or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) is a key instrument aboard the Terra (EOS AM) and Aqua (EOS PM) satellites. Terra's orbit around the Earth is timed so that it passes from north to south across the equator in the morning, while Aqua passes south to north over the equator in the afternoon. Terra MODIS and Aqua MODIS are viewing the entire Earth's surface every 1 to 2 days, acquiring data in 36 spectral bands, or groups of wavelengths (see MODIS Technical Specifications). These data will improve our understanding of global dynamics and processes occurring on the land, in the oceans, and in the lower atmosphere. MODIS is playing a vital role in the development of validated, global, interactive Earth system models able to predict global change accurately enough to assist policy makers in making sound decisions concerning the protection of our environment (from http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/). On January 16, 2001 the antenna was installed on the roof of the DLR German Remote Sensing Data Center building in Oberpfaffenhofen and put into operation for MODIS reception (see http://www.dlr.de/eoc/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-7251/12237_read-29022/ for more details). This mosaic has been generated from TERRA and AQUA products between 30 Sept. to 03 Oct. 2011
This collection contains TerraSAR-X Level 1b data acquired over the pre-defined Geohazard Supersites and a number of CEOS projects regions. The collection comprises mainly complex (SSC) with a number of detected (MGD) products. TerraSAR-X data can be ordered by a Principal Investigator (PI) of a respective Supersite region under the terms of a TerraSAR-X Science proposal accepted by DLR. Data is available for download by the Geohazard scientific community under the terms of the user license. Supersites are single sites or extended areas of high priority to the Geohazards community in which active single or multiple geological hazards pose a threat to human population and/or critical facilities. The Supersites initiative provides access to spaceborne and in-situ geophysical data of selected sites prone to earthquake, volcano or other hazards. For further information see: http://ceos.org/ourwork/workinggroups/disasters/gsnl/ Overview of permament Supersites: http://geo-gsnl.org/supersites/permanent-supersites/

This product shows Snow Cover Duration Late Season (SCDLS). SCDLS represents the SCD between between January 16th and August 31st of a given hydrological year. Information about extent, beginning, duration and melt of snow cover are important for climate research, hydrological applications, flood prediction and weather forecast. Climate change is influencing the characteristics and duration of snow cover, affecting landscape, hydrology, flora, fauna, and humans in equal measure. Therefore, precise information about the different snow parameters and their development over time are particularly important for various research fields. The “Global SnowPack” is a dataset containing information about snow cover parameters on a global scale. Overall, early season, and late season snow cover duration are included and allow detailed insights in the characteristics of this most relevant part of Earth’s cryosphere. The parameters are being derived from daily, operational MODIS snow cover products for every year since 2000. The negative effects of polar darkness and cloud coverage are compensated by applying several processing steps. Thereby, a unique global dataset can be provided that is characterized by its high accuracy, a spatial resolution of 500 meter and continuous future enhancements.

Dech. 2015: Global SnowPack – “A new set of snow cover parameters to study status and dynamics of the planetary snow cover extent.“ accepted for publication in Remote Sensing Letters. Dietz, A.
