Snow and ice are important hydrological resources. Their minimum spatial extent here referred to as annual minimum snow/ice (MSI) cover, plays a very important role as an indicator of long-term changes and baseline capacity for surface water storage. The MSI probability is derived from sequence of seventeen 10-day clear-sky composites corresponding to April, 1 to September, 20 warm period for each year since 2000. Data from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on Terra satellite for the period since 2000 have been processed with the special technology developed at the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) as described in Trishchenko, 2016; Trishchenko et al., 2016; 2009, 2006, Khlopenkov and Trishchenko, 2008, Luo et al., 2008.

The dataset contains large ensembles of bias adjusted daily climate model outputs of minimum temperature, maximum temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, surface pressure, wind speed, incoming shortwave radiation, and incoming longwave radiation on a 0.5-degree grid over North America. Intended uses include hydrological/land surface impact modelling and related event attribution studies. The CanLEADv1 dataset is based on archived climate model simulations in the Canadian Regional Climate Model Large Ensemble (CanRCM4 LE) https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/83aa1b18-6616-405e-9bce-af7ef8c2031c and Canadian Earth System Model Large Ensembles (CanESM2 LE) https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/aa7b6823-fd1e-49ff-a6fb-68076a4a477c datasets. Specifically, CanLEADv1 provides bias adjusted daily climate variables over North America derived from 50 member initial condition ensembles of CanESM2 (ALL and NAT radiative forcings) and CanESM2-driven CanRCM4 (ALL radiative forcings) simulations (Scinocca et al., 2016; Fyfe et al., 2017).
