Snow status (dry/wet) for five layers in Greenland ice sheet during melt seasons from 2016 to 2019 in Matlab mat-format related to Colliander et al. (2023). snowstatus_[V/H] ... the five-layer snow status based on vertical (V) and horizontal (H) brightness temperature: First and second dimension correspond to spatial dimensions (see LAT and LON) Third dimension correpond to time (see datnum and AMPM) Fourth dimension corresponds to the layers: 1: L-band (SMAP) 2: C-band (AMSR2) 3: X-band (AMSR2) 4: Ku-band (AMSR2) 5: Ka-band (AMSR2) LAT and LON ... Latitude and longitude coordinates of the data layers datnum ... Time in Matlab datenum format AMPM ... Indicator whether the data corresponds to AM or PM overpass Colliander, A., M. Mousavi, J.S.
