Abstract:We proposed new snow grain model and snow impurity mixture models for the purpose of accurate retrievals of snow grain size and concentration of light‐absorbing particles (LAP) in snow from the optical remote sensing data. Two kinds of ice crystal models, irregularly shaped Voronoi columns, and Voronoi aggregates were employed. LAP can be captured by the snow through two processes: dry and wet deposition. Two different snow impurity mixture models were proposed. One is an external mixture model. We employed a …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
