Short summary
Snow depth over QTP plays a very important role in the climate and hydrological system, but there are uncertainties on the snow depth products derived from passive microwave remote sensing data. In this study, we evaluated the ability of passive microwave to detect snow cover and snow depth over QTP, presented the accuracy of passive microwave snow cover and snow depth products over QTP, and analyzed the possible reasons causing the uncertainties.
