Snow season length (SS), reported in days, is the length of time that snow is present on the ground on an annual basis. It is determined by finding the first and last snow occurrence for any given year, and then finding the difference between these two dates. SS was calculated on a pixel by pixel basis using MODIS/Terra Snow Cover 8-Day L3 Global 500m Grid, Collection 6 obtained from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). Spatial coverage is for MODIS tiles h08v04, h08v05, h09v04, h09v05, and h10v04 for water years 2001 - 2015. Files are provided in the "USA Contiguous Albers Equal Area Conic USGS" projection. Funding provided by NSF grant EAR-1446870.
