        Continental Snow Cover

        Learn about continental snow cover in this video based on data collected by the MODIS sensor aboard NASA’s Terra satellite. The video includes data on world maps for January through December for 2013 through 2015. The maps, which use color coding to represent monthly snow-cover data, can be used to observe patterns of change across time and location.
