Abstract
Investigations are made of (a) the dielectric properties, at microwave frequencies, of fresh water ice, snow and water and (b) the possibility of using radar to measure the thick- nesses of naturally occurring fresh water ice and snow layers. As concerns (b) above, it is shown that it should be possible to design an FM radar to measure the depths of several meters of ice and snow provided (a) the snow is not wet and (b) there is no water on top of the ice.
