This resource is useful for characterizing the intermittence of snow, or how continuously it covers an area (as opposed to snow persistence which quantifies the fraction of time that snow is present for any location for a defined time period: https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/1c62269aa802467688d25540caf2467e/, or the snow season, which provides the first day of snow occurrence, last day of snow occurrence, and the length of time between the first and last day of snow occurrence per water year: https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/197adcdc76b34591bd78a811bf1dfbfe/).Snow intermittence (snow to no snow counts) for the western U.S. for water years 2001 - 2015 contains annual and mean annual raster datasets with the number of snow to no snow events. The events consist of any time that there was snow that was present and then followed by bare ground within 10 days of the original snow fall. Both MOD10A1 and MOD10A2 binary snow products were used resulting in annual and mean annual rasters at the daily (MOD10A1) and 8-day (MOD10A2) temporal resolutions. This product is primarily intended for areas with sparse vegetation, as dense vegetation obscures the binary snow classification used for the MOD10A1 and MOD10A2 V5 products. These grids are available at the original 500 m MODIS resolution.
