Summary
Abstract: The spatial distribution of surface snow grain size over the Antarctic snow cover has been determined from analysis of near-thermal-infra-red data acquired with the ATSR-2 instrument on the European Space Agency's ERS-2 satellite. Scattering from a snow surface in the short wave infra-red part of the spectrum (0.9 to 3.5 micron) is strongly dependent on grain size, and to a lesser extent on ... View entire text
