Record #125454:

Model for effective thermal conductivity of a dry snow cover composed of uniform ice spheres / Edward E. Adams, Atsushi Sato.

Title: Model for effective thermal conductivity of a dry snow cover composed of uniform ice spheres / Edward E. Adams, Atsushi Sato.
Author(s): Adams, Edward E.
Sato, Atsushi.
Date: 1993.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 18 (1993)
Abstract: Calculation based on thermal resistence due to ice-grain contacts or bonds, pore space/ice acting in series, and unobstructed pore. Shown to depend strongly on snow density and intergranular bonding, as well as temperature. Conductivity tends to increase as density and ratio of contact radius to ice-sphere radius increase. Ice network is generally determined to be most influential in determining effective thermal conductivity.
Notes:

Keywords: 551.578.46 -- Snow cover and snow patches.
