1350 Kendra, Ulaby, and Wu panel whose surface was sanded down to produce a smooth surface interface with the ice cover. The latter was used to evaluate the results of radiative transfer calculations which are much easier to perform for multilayer structures with plane boundaries. We present experimental evidence demonstrating that the technique developed… (More)
