The key objectives of this activity are to determine the temporal and spatial variability of the snow cover over the three campaign areas by means of in-situ data, and compare with the SnowSAR data, snow process models driven by meteorological data, output of numerical weather prediction models and passive microwave data (where reasonable). Furthermore, the sensitivity and relationship of the acquired SnowSAR data (X-band and Ku-band) to the main snowpack parameters (Snow Extent, Snow Water Equivalent (SWE), Snow accumulation over glaciers) should be analysed over three different snow regimes and background media as acquired during SnowSAR-2, TVCExp, and AlpSAR. Empirical or parametric relationships between SnowSAR data and snowpack physical parameters using the result of the sensitivity analysis should be derived.
