    • Snow covered area is an important variable in snowmelt runoff modelling. SAR can supply information on this parameter by detecting the decrease in the backscattering coefficient which occurs when the snowpack becomes wet. However, the method is subject to several geometric, geophysical and logistical constraints which limit its general applicability. These include missing coverage due to relief, reference image availability, inferring dry snow cover, validation and the sampling and time requirements for runoff modelling and forecasting...

    • Snow-covered area (SCA) is a critical input in snow-melt run-off studies. It is difficult to get timely information about SCA, especially of mountain watersheds, by conventional survey methods, including aerial surveys. With the advent of satellite remote sensing, it has now become possible to obtain reliable and regular SCA data...
