Record #119229:

Acoustic measurements of snow and firn permeability / Donald G. Albert.

Title: Acoustic measurements of snow and firn permeability / Donald G. Albert.
Author(s): Albert, Donald G.
Date: 1992.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1992.), Vol. 73(43, fall meeting supplement) (1992)
Abstract: Abstract only. Acoustic pulses propagating horizontally along snow--air surface force air into pores and energy lost by this process can be modelled using layered rigid-ice-frame porous treatment of snow. Permeability can be determined by matching theoretical and experimental acoustic waveforms. Method provides values that are spatially and depth-averaged, and measurements along different paths can be used to examine spatial variability of permeability.
