Snow Coming to Ukraine, Novorossia and Russia

Earth Observatory – Natural Hazards


From Snow in Ukraine

Snowfall blanketed southern Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania in late October. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired this image on October 25, 2014.


From Snow in Central Russia

Snow blanketed central Russia’s Sayan Mountains, as shown in this image acquired November 6, 2014, by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite.

To the east of the mountains lies the southern tip of Lake Baikal,the oldest and deepest lake in the world. When this image was acquired, the lake was still ice-free. Ice typically begins to form by December and fully covers the lake by mid-January.

Bigger images may be downloaded from corresponding websites.

BTW. A map of Northern Hemisphere snow cover is published daily by wetterzentrale.de. Other links to weather maps are placed on the right menu vertical bar.
