Monitoring Snow Cover Patterns and Seasonality

5th Food Security Challenge (FS5)

Challenge Description

Information on snow cover extent is a key component of seasonal monitoring and food security early warning in WFP operations for Central Asia. Agricultural production in countries like Afghanistan is crucially dependent on snow accumulation and snowmelt release from February onwards. Detecting major deficits in snow extent can provide timely indications of potential shortfalls of crop production. Access to historical data may also flag areas where there may be long term tendencies in snow cover that are relevant for government and humanitarian agency longer-term planning.

For these areas, the outputs of this pipeline will articulate with those that produce vegetation index parameters, so that impacts of snow cover variations can be validated against the behavior of vegetation related information over crop-producing regions.

Results 

The results below are divided into Software Repositories, Data Processing Pipeline Services and Data Product Repositories.  In case you would like to get in touch about specific results, please use the indicated reference code.

 

Software Repositories

There are two categories of software repositories generated for the Challenge:

GitLab repositories are hosting the reference software code, for use by the team members of a challenge only (restricted access),
GitHub repositories are hosting the public software code (mirrors), for engagement and collaborative work with the broad community of software developers (public access).

Follow the links below to proceed to one or the other, and find an "Ellip Workflows (ewf)" software application implementing a data processing function.
You can adapt this software to your own context, commit a contribution on the related repository, or engage with the BETTER consortium to run it for a specific purpose (new area of interest, ...) by requesting Cloud resources to support (at) terradue.com

Data processing pipeline

There is a Trigger App & coordinator, ready for the production via Terradue Ops or via Ellip notebooks workspace for 'any' Scaler user. There is no dedicated Infohub App available yet for Scaler users. Initial results from validation tests are available on the Data Store.

 

On-demand processing

Private access from dedicated Infohub App not yet available 

 

 

Data Product Repositories
