Record #126343:

The permeability of temperate snow; preliminary links to microstructure / J.P. Hardy, Donald G. Albert.

Title: The permeability of temperate snow; preliminary links to microstructure / J.P. Hardy, Donald G. Albert.
Author(s): Hardy, J. P.
Albert, Donald G.
Date: [1993]
In: Eastern Snow Conference. Proceedings. ([1993]), Vol. 50th Annual Meeting ([1993])
Abstract: Aim was to correlate field measurements of permeability with physical properties of snow. Throughout 1992-93 winter, field measurements were made using air permeameter, to determine permeability of snow types in Vermont. Concurrently, physical properties of each stratigraphic layer were measured and samples for microstructural analysis were collected. Permeability values agreed with previously published data. No correlation was found between field-measured physical properties and snow permeability. Stereologic parameters for dry snow correlated well with permeability, but for old snow, especially ice layers, correlation was poor.
