Radar Remote Sensing of Snow
Principal Investigator: Kelly, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The primary objectives of this study are to: 1) understand and explain the role of snow microstructure in terms of the radar backscatter and phase response in this environment; 2) to evaluate the efficacy of differential synthetic aperture radar (dInSAR) for snow accumulation estimates at C-band; and 3) to evaluate the optimal approach to estimating snow water equivalent using radar from this site...

Evolution of the snowpack and snowmelt chemistry in the boreal forest and tundra ecosystem
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This research project has two primary scientific goals which include: 1) Relating ground truthed snowpack data to passive microwave data obtained from satellites through the winter months. This will assist in formulating a empirical relationship between the two datasets which is necessary to improve satellite monitoring of snow water equivalent. 2) Determining the relative importance of snowmel...

A Seasonal Sea Ice Monitoring Site (SIMS)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his team will measure various aspects of snow covering the ice surface through the seasonal transition from winter to summer. The observations will coincide with overflights of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) remote sensing aircraft and various satellite sensors. Observations from the ice surface will be correlated with information contained within the remote sensing data....
