Recent advances in remote sensing of seasonal snow

  title={Recent advances in remote sensing of seasonal snow},
  author={Anne W. Nolin},
Remote sensing offers local, regional and global observations of seasonal snow, providing key information on snowpack processes. This brief review highlights advancements in instrumentation and analysis techniques that have been developed over the past decade. Areas of advancement include improved algorithms for mapping snow-cover extent, snow albedo, snow grain size, snow water equivalent, melt detection and snow depth, as well as new uses of instruments such as multiangular spectroradiometers… CONTINUE READING
