Polarimetric and multifrequency SAR signatures of wet snowC-, L-, and P-band polarimetric signatures of wet snow surfaces have been analyzed, based on airborne synthetic aperture radar (AIRSAR) surveys of an Alpine test site. The importance of surface roughness is evident in the C- and L-band signatures, whereas the diffuse scattering contribution by internal inhomogeneities in the snowpack increases from the C- to the P-band at incidence angles below 50 deg due to increasing penetration.
