Record #125848:

On the temperature distribution near a cold surface / Yin-Chao Yen.

Title: On the temperature distribution near a cold surface / Yin-Chao Yen.
Author(s): Yen, Yin-Chao.
Date: 1993.
In: CRREL Report. (1993.), Vol. 93-19 (1993)
Abstract: Temperature profiles were taken during 1991-92 season at experimental site. Some unusual features were observed, including existence of double-reversal in temperature structure close to snow surface when snow temperature is much lower than its melting point, in contrast to persistent raised maximum temperature over melting snowpack. Over frozen or partially frozen ground without snow, and with air temperature either above or below melting point of ice, thin (2 to 3 cm) nearly isothermal air layer was observed. Overall temperature gradient over bare ground is about twice that over snow-covered ground.
