Snow Working Groups and Statement of Purpose
Modeling - To improve modeled representation of snow (SWE, depth, microstructure, etc.) through better model physics and new snow models and to prepare a model environment for assimilation of new/future satellite observations.
L-Band InSAR - To foster an open science community toward exploring the use of L-Band InSAR for estimating SWE, to report on further processing and analysis of UAVSAR data for snow hydrology applications, and to share lessons learned as well as tools/code to handle the unique datasets.
Snow Albedo - Through a detailed and quantitative literature review and a community-led workshop, we will document key knowledge gaps in snow albedo and recommend remote sensing approaches to address these gaps.
UAV-SfM - To share best practices for imagery acquisition and processing with the end goal of producing accurate snow depth reconstructions.
Microwave Scattering - Discuss progress in estimating SWE from remote sensing measurements based on measurements of microwave scattering.
