Paper Abstract

The spatial and temporal distributions of snow depth on Tibetan Plateau are revealed by comparing the data retrieved from satellite remote sensing i.e. SSMR and SSM/I with station observations. All of the results show that snow depth on the Tibetan plateau plays an important role in East Asia summer precipitation anomalies and in consequence, some possible mechanisms are proposed.
