Record #188212:

Snow depth estimation over north-western Indian Himalaya using AMSR-E / Indrani Das, R.N. Sarwade.

Title: Snow depth estimation over north-western Indian Himalaya using AMSR-E / Indrani Das, R.N. Sarwade.
Author(s): Das, Indrani.
Sarwade, R. N.
Date: 2008.
In: International Journal of Remote Sensing. (2008.), Vol. 29(13-14) (2008)
Abstract: Presents snow depth estimation using 18.7H and 36.5H GHz channels of Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS (AMSR-E). Uses Microwave Emission Model of Layered Snowpacks (MEMLS) and AMSR-E to understand difference in snow pack emitted and sensor received signals (brightness temperatures) due to topography. Shows that brightness temperature of MEMLS and AMSR-E are comparable at 18.7 GHz, with some differences at 36.5 GHz showing sensitivity to topography. Uses three years of AMSR-E data to modify 1.59 algorithm (Chang et al, 1987) to suit terrain and snow conditions of north-western Indian Himalaya and compares retrieved snow depth with ground observations. Reports modified algorithm provides better snow depth estimate over mountainous terrain.
