—Microwave radiometry has been extensively used in order to estimate snow water equivalent in northern regions. However, for boreal and taiga environments, the presence of forest causes important uncertainties in the estimates. Variations in snow cover and vegetation in northeastern Canada (north of the Québec province) were characterized in a transect from(More)
—Passive microwave remote sensing is extensively used in polar regions to study the cryosphere. To better understand the measured signal above continental ice-covered areas, our objective is to estimate the microwave emission of bubbly-ice surfaces using a physically based multilayer electromagnetic model, i.e., the dense media radiative transfer—multilayer(More)
—The Antarctic Plateau presents ideal characteristics to study the relationship between microwave observations and snow/ice properties. It is also a promising target for radiometer calibration and sensor intercalibration, which are critical for applications requiring subkelvin accuracy, such as sea surface salinity retrievals. This paper presents the(More)
