Image captured on 26 April 2020, by the MODIS instrument, on board the Aqua satellite.
False color (Bands 7-2-1) corrected reflectance image of snow covering Iceland. The image was acquired on 26 April 2020 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument, on board the Aqua satellite.
In this false color image, the 7-2-1 band combination can be used to distinguish snow and ice from clouds. Snow appears in cyan and clouds are white/white-light cyan. You can also turn on the Snow Cover (Normalized Difference Snow Index) layer to evaluate how much snow is on the ground.
