Airborne SAR and passive microwave measurements over snow covered tundra for CoReH20 retrieval validation and land surface model testing
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The proposed European Space Agency Earth Explorer 7 CoReH20 satellite mission has the primary objective of retrieving snow water equivalent (SWE) over land at a high spatial resolution (200-500 metres) from X- and Ku-band Synthetic Aperture Radar measurements. This would make available high resolution, satellite derived SWE, for monitoring and modeling applications. To-date, airborne measurements ...


Airborne passive microwave surveys of the Snare and Yellowknife basins to estimate snow water equivalent
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Regional estimates of snow water equivalent (SWE) are useful for climate studies, calculating how much water is stored in the snowpack, and weather forecasting. These data are available from manual surface measurements, but there not very many measureme...
