Mapping Winter Liquid Water Availability (R2) for Lakes on the North Slope Coastal Plain of Alaska Using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI)
Reports: Timeseries, modeling, PALSAR
Provide a time series investigation of North Slope lakes within a small pilot study area to illustrate the observed changes in ERS-2 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) response and lake condition over time. An investigation of PALSAR radar dynamics for two example lakes is also provided. A review of the mechanisms of radar backscatter and modeling is also...
