Investigating the relationship between snow microstructure and airborne synthetic aperature radar measurements of tundra snow to improve environmental prediction capabilities in polar regions
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: High resolution Ku-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has been proposed to measure Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) from space as part of the proposed Canadian Space Agency Terrestrial Snow Mass Mission (TSMM). An opportunity exists to advance the understanding of the Ku-band radar response to snow properties and develop improved retrieval algorithms using airborne sensors that replicate elements of t...


Airborne SAR and passive microwave measurements over snow covered tundra for CoReH20 retrieval validation and land surface model testing
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed 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). This would make available high resolution, satellite derived SWE, for monitoring and modeling applications. To-date, airborne measurements to test the CoReH20 satellite mission concept have been ac...


Airborne passive microwave surveys of the Snare and Yellowknife basins to estimate snow water equivalent
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed 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...
