This paper is concerning the estimation of snow wetness from multi-polarization SAR data. In this paper, microwave interaction with snow covered terrain and different scattering mechanism from snowpack and their backscattering model for developing inversion algorithm with wet snow conditions are described in order to estimate snow wetness. SAR data processing and field measurement of snow parameters are also discussed. In this study, snow wetness has been measured with a dielectric moisture
