Based on Canadian Satellite (RADARSAT) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images and simulations from a radar-backscattering model, we determined that conventional wet snow-mapping algorithms should perform optimally for a snowpack with a liquid-water content 3%, at low incidence angle ( = 20–30 ) and for a rather smooth surface (rms height ≤ 2.1 mm).
