Defined in the early 1990s for use with gridded satellite passive microwave data, the Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) was quickly adopted and used for distribution of a variety of satellite and in situ data sets. Conceptually easy to understand, EASE-Grid suffers from limitations that make it impossible to format in the widely popular GeoTIFF… (More)
The NASA Cold-land Processes Field Experiment-1 (CLPX-1) involved several instruments in order to acquire data a t different spatial resolutions. Indeed, one of the main tasks of CLPX-1 was to explore scaling issues associated with microwave remote sensing of snowpacks. To achieve this task, microwave brightness temperatures collected at 18.7, 36.5, and 89… (More)
Incorporation of satellite-derived snow-cover area in spatial snowmelt modeling for a large area: determination of a gridded degree-day factor,
We wish to make the following corrections to this paper : (1) The right hand side of Figure 5 is incorrect. Figure 5. Relative gridding schemes for representative azimuthal 25 km and 12.5 km original EASE-Grid ((Left), bore-centered) vs. EASE-Grid 2.0 ((Right), nested) cells near the pole.
Quasi Crystalline Approximation with Coherent Potential (QCA-CP). Inputs to the model were averaged from LSOS snow pit measurements, although different averages were used for the lower frequencies vs. the highest one, due to the different penetration depths and to the stratigraphy of the snowpack. Mean snow particle radius was computed as a best-fit… (More)
