"Ten Years of SeaWinds on QuikSCAT for Snow Applications";
The scatterometer SeaWinds on QuikSCAT provided regular measurements at
Ku-band from 1999 to 2009. Although it was designed for ocean applications, it has
been frequently used for the assessment of seasonal snowmelt patterns aside from other
terrestrial applications such as ice cap monitoring, phenology and urban mapping. This paper
discusses general data characteristics of SeaWinds and reviews relevant change detection
algorithms. Depending on the complexity of the method, parameters such as long-term noise
and multiple event analyses were incorporated. Temporal averaging is a commonly accepted
preprocessing step with consideration of diurnal, multi-day or seasonal averages.
