• The Determination of the Snow Optical Grain Diameter and Snowmelt Area on the Greenland Ice Sheet Using Spaceborne Optical Observations 

      Vandecrux, Baptiste; Box, Jason E.; Wehrlé, Adrien; Kokhanovsky, Alexander A.; Picard, Ghislain; Niwano, Masashi; Hörhold, Maria; Faber, Anne-Katrine; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      The optical diameter of the surface snow grains impacts the amount of energy absorbed by the surface and therefore the onset and magnitude of surface melt. Snow grains respond to surface heating through grain metamorphism ...

      Kokhanovsky, Alexander; Lamare, Maxim; Danne, Olaf; Brockmann, Carsten; Dumont, Marie; Picard, Ghislain; Arnaud, Laurent; Favier, Vincent; Jourdain, Bruno; Le Meur, Emmanuel; Di Mauro, Biagio; Aoki, Teruo; Niwano, Masashi; Rozanov, Vladimir; Korkin, Sergey; Kipfstuhl, Sepp; Freitag, Johannes; Hoerhold, Maria; Zuhr, Alexandra; Vladimirova, Diana; Faber, Anne-Katrine; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian; Wahl, Sonja; Andersen, Jonas K.; Vandecrux, Baptiste; van As, Dirk; Mankoff, Kenneth D.; Kern, Michael; Zege, Eleonora; Box, Jason E. (Journal article, 2019)
      The Sentinel Application Platform (SNAP) architecture facilitates Earth Observation data processing. In this work, we present results from a new Snow Processor for SNAP. We also describe physical principles behind the ...
    • An unmanned aerial vehicle sampling platform for atmospheric water vapor isotopes in polar environments 

      Rozmiarek, Kevin S.; Vaughn, Bruce H.; Jones, Tyler R.; Morris, Valerie; Skorski, William B.; Hughes, Abigail G.; Elston, Jack; Wahl, Sonja; Faber, Anne-Katrine; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Above polar ice sheets, atmospheric water vapor exchange occurs across the planetary boundary layer (PBL) and is an important mechanism in a number of processes that affect the surface mass balance of the ice sheets. Yet, ...
