Microwave measurements have been used in various studies to detect melt based on their sensitivity to liquid water present in snow. To contrast different melt detection methods used with different sensors, six different melt detection method/sensor combinations are compared using data for the summer of 2000. The sensors include the Special Spectral Microwave Imager (SSM/I), SeaWinds on QuikSCAT (QSCAT), and the European Remote Sensing (ERS) Advanced Microwave Instrument (AMI) in scatterometer… CONTINUE READING
