Introduction to Snow Products
WMO Satellite Skills
Ali Nadir Arslan gave an overall introduction of the H SAF products with a focus on snow detection.
The operational goal of H SAF highlights the need to provide products with a reliable measure of their accuracy, so the potential users are made aware of the advantages and drawbacks of the use of the H SAF products in their operational activities. With this aim, within the H SAF, three Validation Groups have been established: one for precipitation, one for soil moisture and one for snow products.
An overview of existing and future satellite-derived snow products will be provided.
