Abstract Results from several previously published algorithms for wet snow detection in Antarctica from K-band spaceborne brightness temperature are compared and evaluated vs. estimates of wet snow conditions from ground measurements. In addition, a new physically-driven algorithm, in which the detectable liquid water content is assumed constant, is proposed and assessed. All algorithms are also evaluated by analyzing their results during collapses of ice shelves. Two algorithms are selected… CONTINUE READING
