Record #119151:

Snowpack melt on the Greenland ice sheet as an indicator of climate variability / Thomas L. Mote.

Title: Snowpack melt on the Greenland ice sheet as an indicator of climate variability / Thomas L. Mote.
Author(s): Mote, Thomas L.
Date: 1992.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1992.), Vol. 73(43, fall meeting supplement) (1992)
Abstract: Abstract only. Increase of liquid water content of snowpack during melting has been shown to increase microwave brightness temperature due to decrease in internal scattering of snow. This phenomenon is identified for specific locations during summer melt for 1979 to 1990, using gridded SSM/I and SMMR microwave radiometric data. Examines spatial and temporal variations of melt signal with regard to climate change.
