AirMOSS

The Airborne Microwave Observatory of Subcanopy and Subsurface (AirMOSS) instrument uses P-band polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) to conduct high-resolution observations of soil moisture conditions. This image shows estimated thickness of the soil active layer for a region in Alaska.

Investigating Permafrost Using SAR

This false-color image shows a swath of permafrost active-layer thickness estimates (red/yellow = thicker; blue/green = shallower; black = water). The active layer of soil thaws during summer and re-freezes in autumn. This information is used in studies of permafrost dynamics and soil carbon flux.
