Record #125409:

Depth-hoar crystal growth in the surface layer under high temperature gradient / Takuya Fukuzawa, Eizi Akitaya.

Title: Depth-hoar crystal growth in the surface layer under high temperature gradient / Takuya Fukuzawa, Eizi Akitaya.
Author(s): Fukuzawa, Takuya.
Akitaya, Eizi.
Date: 1993.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 18 (1993)
Abstract: Field observations were carried out on south-facing slope in northern Hokkaido for 50 days during winter 1989-90. Aim was to ascertain number of days taken to metamorphose new snow crystals to depth-hoar crystals near surface. Also, series of laboratory experiments were performed on kinetic growth metamorphism for low-density snow under high temperature gradients of 100 to 300 K m⁻¹. Growth rates were about 10⁻⁹ m s⁻¹, which agreed well with field observations.
