Absorption at Microwave Frequencies in a Moist Metamorphic Snow Pack Due to Pendular Ring Accumulations of Liquid Water

Abstract

The absorption coefficient of moist snow at low microwave frequencies is investigated. One geometrically realistic form of the presence of liquid water in a metamorphosed snow pack is a pendular ring. These rings form around the contact points between rounded ice grains. When averaged over all possible orientations, this shape of liquid water in the… (More)
