  • Released Monday, April 17, 2006

This animation shows MODIS daily measurements of both snow cover and sea ice surface temperature in the Northern Hemisphere for the winter of 2002-2003. MODIS can only take measurements in daylight, so measurements during the polar winter night are taken from the last valid measurement.
