NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Snow Cover

The GOES-R ABI Snow Cover product contains an image with pixel values identifying the fraction of their areas covered by snow. The product includes data quality information that provides an assessment of the snow cover data values for on-earth pixels. The units of measure for the snow cover value is percent. The Snow Cover product image is produced on the ABI fixed grid at 2 km resolution for Full Disk, CONUS and Mesoscale coverage regions. Product data is produced under the following conditions: Existence of land; Clear sky; Geolocated source data to local zenith angles of 90 degrees and solar zenith angles of 90 degrees.
