Record #84472:

Microwave snow signatures (1.5 mm to 3 cm) over Alaska / A.T.C. Chang, J.L. Foster, Dorothy K. Hall.

Title: Microwave snow signatures (1.5 mm to 3 cm) over Alaska / A.T.C. Chang, J.L. Foster, Dorothy K. Hall.
Author(s): Chang, A. T. C.
Foster, J. L.
Hall, Dorothy K.
Date: 1987.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1987.), Vol. 13(2) (1987)
Abstract: Airborne radiometer data acquired 10 and 13 February 1983 are analyzed and compared with Nimbus-7 SMMR data. Aircraft equipped with both imaging and fixed-beam passive microwave radiometers. Found that, although 92 GHz data are more sensitive to snow-crystal scattering, data at this frequency are also more sensitive to atmospheric parameters. Thus, in cloud-free areas, 92 GHz microwave patterns over snow in Alaska were similar to patterns obtained from 37 GHz data.
