[A-CC27] Remote Sensing of Snow
Wed. May 23, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall7, Makuhari Messe)
convener:Sheldon Dean Drobot (Harris Corporation)
Due to its high albedo and low thermal conductivity, snow cover plays a central role in the mass and energy exchange across land-atmosphere and ocean-ice-atmosphere interfaces. Improvements in remote sensing technologies are now enabling a variety of new and improved observation capabilities for snow, including formation in the atmosphere, snowfall rates, and snow water equivalent (SWE) measurements. In this session, we seek abstracts related to remote sensing of snow in all its forms. This includes use of existing sensors for snow measurements and concepts for new sensors. Applications for snow in the atmosphere, on land, and on ice are welcome.
