A radiative transfer theory which combines rough surface and volume scattering effects is applied to interpret backscatter measurements from snow and sea ice. The surface scattering effect is accounted for by the Kirchhoff model evaluated either with or without the deep phase modulation assumption. Hence, the major restriction on the surface model is that the horizontal roughness scale must be large enough to satisfy the large radius of curvature requirement. The inhomogeneous layer for… CONTINUE READING
