Record #125443:

A theoretical prediction of the effects of electrostatic forces on saltating snow particles / Scott Schmidt, J.D. Dent.

Title: A theoretical prediction of the effects of electrostatic forces on saltating snow particles / Scott Schmidt, J.D. Dent.
Author(s): Schmidt, Scott.
Dent, J. D.
Date: 1993.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 18 (1993)
Abstract: Electrification of snow particles during blizzards creates forces that may affect their trajectories during saltation along charged surface. Here, review of electrostatic measurements made in drifting snow, and of physical basis for this charge generation and separation, leads to proposed set of saltation equations that include electrostatic forces. Hypothesis regarding electric field in saltation region results from comparing theoretical electric field above bed of ice spheres with measured fields at greater heights in drifting snow, and numerical solution of equations provides example trajectories.
