CryoLand

Geospatial products on the seasonal snow cover, glaciers and lake/river ice.

CryoLand will be a service to provide geospatial products on the seasonal snow cover (snow extent, snow mass, melt state), glaciers (area, snow / ice extent, ice velocities, glacier dammed lakes), and lake / river ice (extent, temporal variations, snow burden). The products will be derived from Earth observation satellite data in response to user needs. Snow and ice products at near-real time delivery will be supplied with pan-European coverage, as well as with national and regional coverage in Europe and on other continents as required by the users.
