Information on seasonal freeze–thaw cycle of soil and vegetation is of great interest for climate modeling and understanding the fluxes of heat, moisture and gases like carbon dioxide between the land surface and the atmosphere. Radar measurements have a great potential to provide this information, because at microwave frequencies, the dielectric properties vary considerably when going from the frozen to the thawed state. A technique was developed to retrieve the date of the transition from the… CONTINUE READING
