The present article is concerned with the applied aspects of applying the results of space monitoring of snow cover, in particular, it is proposed to present the results of the analysis in the form of specialized bulletins. The purpose of this publication is to present the available results of space monitoring of snow cover in Kazakhstan as an element of adaptation to climate change. A three-level system of space monitoring of snow cover is proposed, which includes three technological complexes: operational mapping of snow cover boundaries; monitoring of seasonal snow cover dynamics; analysis of long-term snow cover dynamics. A map of snow melting in Kazakhstan in 2020, the dynamics of long-term changes of snow covered area, as well as methods for analyzing the spatial- temporal distribution of snow cover and formats of special bulletins are presented. It is most appropriate to present the results of space monitoring of snow cover in a complex, maximally generalized form (product). The results of the work can be applied in the scientific, industrial and educational spheres to adapt and increase resistance.
