The paper deals with the detection and quantification of snow melting in Antarctica. The topic is very timely given the changes that the continent is facing due to the climate forcing. Basically, the work done is based on two synergic "modules". Half of the work is focused on the identification of the regions experiencing seasonal melting, the onset and the phenomenon and its ending; the other part is focused on the retrieval on the liquid water content of snow. Albeit being synergic, the two

The first part of the paper describes the algorithm used to detect melting areas and the duration in Antarctica. The algorithms leverage previous results well established obtained over both Alpine C1 TCD Interactive comment Printer-friendly version Discussion paper
