The recent developments in cloud removal approaches of MODIS snow cover product

Xinghua Li, Yinghong Jing, Huanfeng Shen, Liangpei Zhang
2019 Hydrology and Earth System Sciences  
In the last few decades, a large number of cloud removal methods for MODIS snow cover products have been proposed.  ...  The spatial methods and temporal methods remove the cloud cover of the snow product based on the spatial patterns and temporal changing correlation of the snowpack, respectively.  ...  Therefore, the fusion of MODIS and the IMS product has an advantage over the fusion of MODIS and AMSR-E. Moreover, proposed fusing MODIS and the AMSR-E daily with the SWE product or IMS product.  ...
