    Abstract

    We have compared theoretical 37 GHz and 16.5 GHz vertically polarized brightness temperatures (incidence angle 50 degrees off nadir) with experimental time series data obtained over a 26-hr period in an extensive ground-based experiment in southern Finland. During the 26-hr monitoring effort, the snowpack included a variety of dry and wet snow layers (top layer mentioned first) dry/wet snow, wet/dry/wet snow, dry/wet/dry/wet snow, and, again, dry/wet snow, with the characteristics of each layer varying considerably with time.
