Snow in Spain in January 2021 in VIIRS Cloud Phase RGB imagery
WMO Satellite Skills
This case study treats snow detection with the Cloud Phase RGB.
During 07-10 January 2021, a winter storm produced a significant 30-50 cm snow depth over large parts of Spain. We studied this snow cover over the following ten days in VIIRS Cloud Phase RGB images. The Cloud Phase RGB is a composite image, which will also be available with data from the future Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) imager.
