The Snow and Ice Spectral library contains snow and ice spectral signature collected during several field campaigns in Arctic and Antarctica.
In the library, each spectral curve is associated with nivological data of the surfaces examined , such as the grains shape and size, density and hardness of the snow pack , snow surface temperature. The adopted standard for the description of the snow cover is the International classification for seasonal snow on the ground (Fierz et al. 2009 IASC).
The original database has been updated for this web version of the project, as well as the algorithms specifically written to browse the library and to perform spectral data elaborations.
