Validation of new snow products using Copernicus Sentinel data

Published: 2 December 2021

In this part we will address the potential of using Sentinel-2 high-resolution imagery to validate moderate-resolution snow products supplied by the Hydrological Satellite Facility (HSAF) Project of EUMETSAT.

The consistency of Sentinel-2 observations has been assessed against both in-situ snow measurements and webcam digital imagery and they can be used as reference data (Piazzi et al 2019). We will show the comparison of HSAF products and Sentinel 2 dataset in different region of the world with different snow seasonality.
