Dielectric Properties, Density and Wetness of Surface Snow for SAR- Ground Truth
Entry ID: mattila_SAR_ground_truth_DML

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Ground truth data for SAR- images was collected in western Dronning Maud Land
during austral summer 2003/2004. Data set includes measurements of dielectric
properties, density and wetness of the surface snow from 50 cm deep snow pits
and observations of snow pack stratigraphy and surface roughness. Dataset
covers a 350 km long traverse form the edge of an ice shelf to a mountain range
~ 300 km from the coast. Snow pits were excavated every 5 km along the
transect.
