Short summary
The paper presents a theoretical analysis of seasonal brightness temperature variations at a number of large freshwater lakes retrieved from data of the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity satellite. Three distinct seasonal time regions corresponding to different phenological phases of the lake surfaces, complete ice cover, ice melt and deterioration, and open water, were revealed. The paper demonstrates the possibility of determining the beginning of ice cover deterioration from satellite data.
