Description: The main objective of the project SnowPEx is the intercomparison and validation of hemispheric and global satellite snow products for estimation of temporal trends of the seasonal snow cover and assessing their accuracy. The main providers on satellite snow extent and water equivalent products are participating in this exercise. In the 1st International Satellite Snow Products Intercomparison Workshop, held at NOAA, Maryland, in July 2014, the community discussed and agreed on methods and protocols for intercomparison of products and their validation using reference data sets from various environments and surface types around the world. Overview and status on products and reference data sets are accessible at The 2nd International Workshop on Satellite Snow Products Intercomparison aims to present and discuss the current status of the snow products validation and intercomparison, to check the trend analysis and to ´┐╝elaborate guidelines for quantifying uncertainty estimates. Scientists are encouraged to submit abstracts for ´┐╝presentations and posters at the workshop.
