Paper Abstract

During the course of reflecting light-wave, the surface of snow will cause polarimetric properties which are related to the nature of itself. Thus, detection of the polarimetric information for snow has become a new remote sensing monitoring method. In this paper, starting from the perspective of multi-angle polarimetric reflectance, the multi-angle spectral-polarimetric instrument was used to obtain the multi-angle visible and near infrared spectral-polarimetric characteristic data of snow in different melting states. And then, the change rule between polarimetric properties with different affecting factors, such as viewing zenith angle, incidence zenith angle of the light source, relative azimuth angle, waveband of the detector as well as different types of snowmelt were discussed. The visible and near infrared spectral-polarimetric properties of snow has not only important theoretical significance for the quantitative analysis of snowmelt properties, but also wide application prospect, and provides new ideas and methods for the quantitative research on snow using the remote sensing technology.
