Response of RADAR Backscatter at Multiple Frequencies and Polarizations to Changing Snow and Ice Properties on a Temperate Saline Lake

Justin F. Beckers
Currently there is a lack of knowledge regarding the distribution of the mass of snow, or snow water equivalence, over land and ice.  ...  In the winters of 2008/09 and 2009/10, C-, X-, and Ku-band imagery retrieved from Envisat ASAR, TerraSAR-X and QuikSCAT were compared with repeated in-situ and autonomous measurements of snow and ice properties  ...  Rott et al. 2010 reported results from forward modelling and the three aforementioned campaigns and noted a change of 1 db/35-40 mm SWE change from Ku band where SWE was less than 200 mm and 1 dB/100  ...
