Record #112572:

Thermal effects of windpumping in snow / M.R. Albert, W.R. McGilvary.

Title: Thermal effects of windpumping in snow / M.R. Albert, W.R. McGilvary.
Author(s): Albert, M. R.
McGilvary, W. R.
Date: 1991.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1991.), Vol. 72(44, supplement) (1991)
Abstract: AGU Fall Meeting Program and Abstracts, December 9-13, 1991. Discusses this process of forced flow of air through snowpack with emphasis on theoretical and laboratory investigations of thermal effects. Heat transfer mechanisms relative to compressible and incompressible flow are discussed, and development of finite element model applicable to windpumping is described. Results demonstrate that snow temperature profile is dominated by sensible heat transfer due to combined effects of heat conduction and advection of heat associated with flow of air through snow.
Notes:

Keywords: 551.578.46 -- Snow cover and snow patches.
536.2 -- Heat, transmission.
