- Experimental results were presented showing backscatter dependence on frequency, angle of incidence, snow wetness, and frequency modulation. Theoretical studies were made of the inverse scattering problem yielding some preliminary results concerning the determination of the dielectric constant of the snow layer. The experimental results lead to the following conclusions: (1) snow layering affects backscatter; (2) layer response was significant up to 45 degrees of incidence; (3) wetness modifies snow layer effects; and (4) frequency modulation masks the layer response.
