Record #112432:

Controls on the composition of snowmelt / Martyn Tranter.

Title: Controls on the composition of snowmelt / Martyn Tranter.
Author(s): Tranter, Martyn.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Seasonal snowpacks; processes of compositional change. (1991.),
Abstract: Despite disparate nature of field studies and laboratory experiments, there is some agreement on most important controls: snowpack hydrology, micro- and mesoscale distribution of solute within snow column, occurrence of melt-freeze cycles, influence of rain on snow, occurrence of dissolution reactions and possibility of biological activity. As yet, there is no model of snowmelt composition which accounts for all these influences, so knowledge at present is largely qualitative.
