An algorithm for estimating aerial snow water equivalent in the Northwest Territories using passive microwave data
Principal Investigator: Gan, Thian Yew
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Given the vast size of the N.W.T., it is very difficult to accurately measure the amount of water that is made available from snow (called snow water equivalents or SWE). A variety of agencies have collected data from climate stations and satellites and this data can be used to estimate SWE. This study will involve taking measurements of snow on the ground and comparing these measurements to th...
