Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: Calibration and Validation Boise State University/NASA Goddard Space Center, Science Mission Directorate

The two primary goals of this project were to improve our ability to monitor snow properties from space, and to develop a research group within Idaho, which will become a leader in remote sensing of the Cryosphere. New methods that can exceed the maximum spatial and temporal resolution and extent over which snow can be currently measured were develop. This includes new remote sensing techniques, as well as methods that allow higher resolution snow characterization for calibration and validation of remote sensing observations.

Changes in spatial variability as measured by variogram analysis along a radar profile in Silverton, Colorado.

Students work with NASA EPSCoR researcher, Dr. HP Marshall, Science PI, Boise State University, to perform in-situ snow measurements for calibration and validation of ground-based and satellite radar measurements in support of the “Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: Calibration and Validation� grant.

Radar measurements from aerial tramway, which allowed weekly non-destructive measurements throughout the winter.
