Snow water equivalent (SWE) is one of the key parameters for many applications in climatology, hydrology, and water resource planning and management. Satellite-based passive microwave sensors have provided global, long-term observations that are sensitive to SWE. However, the complexity of the snowpack makes modeling the microwave emission and inversion of(More)
Mountain areas, occupying one quarter proportion of terrene area on the earth, characterize topography as the diversity of the mountain ecosystem and the hill-scale climate change, and also provide resource and services for equivalent to the one fourth global populations, among which Tibetan Plateau is known as the world famous mountain plateau. Because of(More)
—Ground surface freeze–thaw cycles caused by changes in solar radiation have a great impact on soil–air water heat exchanges due to the phase transition of pore water. This influence should not be ignored in the land surface process and global environment change studies because of its large extent and the rapid changes in daily and seasonal frozen ground.(More)
