Identifying the snow melting dynamics by exploiting the multi-temporal Sentinel-1 backscattering
MetadataShow full item record
Snow plays a key role in the hydrological cycle. Especially in mountain regions such as the Alps, snowmelt is the main responsible of run-off regimes, strongly influencing groundwater storage, flooding, avalanches, and contaminant release. Hence, understanding and predicting snowmelt dynamics is essential for a better planning and accurate monitoring of our resources.
