Record #84683:

Influence of depth hoar on microwave emission from snow in northern Alaska / Dorothy K. Hall.

Title: Influence of depth hoar on microwave emission from snow in northern Alaska / Dorothy K. Hall.
Author(s): Hall, Dorothy K.
Date: 1987.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1987.), Vol. 13(3) (1987)
Abstract: Analysis of scanning multichannel microwave radiometer (SMMR) snow maps shows that snowpack of Arctic coastal plain of Alaska displays values of microwave brightness temperature that are lower than expected for this shallow snow. Also, observed values in northern Alaska decrease as winter progresses. Modelling of these observations shows that presence and variability of depth hoar layer in northern Alaska can have significant effect on microwave emission.
