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...

Variability and Change in the Canadian Cryosphere - Tundra Information Transferability Study
Principal Investigator: Walker, Anne E
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: Environment Canada plans to measure snow depth, snow density and snow water equivalent (water storage in the snowpack), as well as lake ice thickness and structure for comparison with microwave radiometer measurements. Researchers have started to use microwave data from satellites for assessing snow water equivalent (SWE). Field tests to investigate the use of microwave sensors indicate that SW...

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...
