Abstract
Observation by limited field observational stations is the major conventional method of research on snow and relevant problem, such as flood caused by melting snow. However, observation on only several ground observatories cannot provide enough information for large scale region accurately and timely. The advanced technology of remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) is an effective tool to extract snow information and monitor snow change quickly and dynamically. This paper discusses the method of snow mapping and establishing dynamic snow monitoring information system by using multisensor, multispectral and multitemporal remote sensing data (NOAA/AVHRR, satellite borne SAR and TM).The study results show that the use of multisensor data and technique of GIS, combined with relative contemporaneous field observational data, enables the snow monitoring more rapid and accurate.
