Abstract
The objective of this project was to investigate the use of active microwave systems and involved the acquisition and interpretation of radar backscatter from snowpack and bare ground. Two sites were used for data collection during the 1991/92 winter season - a mountainous site located in the Elk valley, near Fernie, British Columbia and a prairie site lolcated near Lethbridge, Alberta. Primary interest was in the snow and terrain characteristics affecting vehicle mobility and important hydrologic snow features. The work was performed for the Defence Technologies Division of Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES), Department of National Defence in Ralston, Alberta by the Terrain Resources Division of Polar Sea Research Ltd. in Lethbridge, Alberta.
