High Resolution (5km) Pan-European SWE Product (Augmented Using Optical FSC Data) (FMI)

Product Code & Name
Pan-European Snow Water Equivalent
Contact
Matias Takala, Finnish Meteorological Institute
Email: Matias.Takala () fmi.fi
Overview
The product estimates Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) in millimeters for Pan European grid in 0.05 degrees spatial resolution. Ground without snow, mountains and water bodies are masked out. Snow line is masked using combination of IMS and VIIRS data.
