This use case supports the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) in collecting information on snow cover and snow conditions during the winter.

Statistics derived from this give key information on snow trends, important for many fields including risk assessment (e.g, flooding from meltwater), transport, logistics and hydropower planning.  Snow roof load is also important for construction planning.

Use case-specific infographics have been developed to illustrate the project’s outcomes:
