Record #119109:

Monitoring snow grain size for passive microwave studies / Richard L. Armstrong, Albert Rango.

Title: Monitoring snow grain size for passive microwave studies / Richard L. Armstrong, Albert Rango.
Author(s): Armstrong, Richard L.
Rango, Albert.
Date: 1992.
In: Western Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1992.), Vol. 60th Annual Meeting (1992)
Abstract: Discusses need to characterize snow grain size on regional basis so that level of accuracy of passive microwave snow-cover algorithms can be improved. First level of characterization is to determine exent to which average snow-grain sizes exceed threshold value of 2 mm in diameter. Preliminary analysis indicates that even crude relationship between snow depth and grain size can make significant contribution to improved accuracy.
