— A study of the melting cycle of snow was carried out by combining microwave active and passive measurements with meteorological data and snow modelling. The experiment took place in the eastern Italian Alps from mid February to late May 2003. Brightness temperature at C-, Ku-and Ka-bands (vertical and horizontal polarizations) and backscattering(More)
—A study of the melting cycle of snow was carried out by using ground-based microwave radiometers, which operated continuously 24 h/day from late March to mid-May in 2002 and from mid-February to early May in 2003. The experiment took place on the eastern Italian Alps and included micrometeorological and conventional snow measurements as well. The(More)
One of the most ambitious ongoing research project in glacier monitoring is the GLIMS (Global Land Ice Monitoring from Space) Project, coordinated by the USGS. The main objective of this international project is to establish a new global inventory of land ice based on remote sensing data (mainly on ASTER images). The research team of the Department of Civil(More)
