Record #126309:

Snow cover model for global climate simulations / Bettina Loth, Hans-F. Graf, Josef M. Oberhuber.

Title: Snow cover model for global climate simulations / Bettina Loth, Hans-F. Graf, Josef M. Oberhuber.
Author(s): Loth, Bettina.
Graf, Hans-F.
Oberhuber, Josef M.
Date: 1993.
In: Journal of Geophysical Research. (1993.), Vol. 98(D6) (1993)
Abstract: Because of high sensitivity of climate system to anomalies of snow cover, appropriate models are required. One-dimensional multilayer model of snow cover is presented combining relatively accurate model physics with minimal computer time. Model is based on mass and energy balances, and includes all important internal processes altering snow cover. Cold snow, wet snow, firn snow, and ice are distinguished. Remaining problem is choice of criterion to distinguish between snowfall and rain.
