Document title

Passive microwave remote sensing of seasonal snow-covered sea ice

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The AA. provide a summary of the current state of knowledge pertaining to the geophysical, thermodynamic and dielectric properties of snow on sea ice. They first give a detailed description of snow thermophysical properties such as thermal conductivity, diffusivity and specific heat and how snow geophysical /electrical properties and the seasonal surface energy balance affect them. The AA. also review the different microwave emission and scattering mechanisms associated with snow-covered first-year sea ice. Finally, they discuss the annual evolution of the Arctic system through snow thermodynamic and aeolian processes, with linkages to microwave remote sensing
