Regional Snow Extent

Data from Feb1997 to Dec2019

Only the high resolution data since 1997 is good enough for a detailed regional analysis.
The limited timespan of 23 years would only allow two true decadal means. Instead I created three 10 year means with a slight overlap. Over time they will drift apart until we get three true decades.
The exact region extents can seens on the map.
