This dataset represents the autumn (Sept-Nov) and spring (Mar-May) seasonal snow cover over a ~10 year period for the Canadian Boreal (Brandt, 2009). It is currently being used in conjunction with other datasets to help characterize ecosystem properties and biodiversity within the Canadian Boreal region.
