Paper Abstract

Based on the image characteristics of Tianshan Mountains, using multi-temporal multi-band NOAA/AVHRR, MODIS images, combined with high resolution CBERS-1/2 and ETM images, a model for estimating the area of snow cover and the depth of snow cover at different places was proposed. The snow cover variation characteristics including the distribution of snow cover, the depth of snow cover and the drawing method for snow cover were focused. Based on the model, the snow cover of the area along Tianshan Highway from 1996-2006 was studied.
