Record #164623:

Numerical modeling of blowing and drifting snow in Alpine terrain / Peter Gauer.

Title: Numerical modeling of blowing and drifting snow in Alpine terrain / Peter Gauer.
Author(s): Gauer, Peter.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(156) (2001)
Abstract: Presents model of wind redistribution of snow with potential for use in land planning and avalanche forecasting. Fully three-dimensional, continuum mechanical approach to descriptions of transport by saltation and suspension (drifting and blowing). Model is two-layered and non-steady-state. Measurements to compare with model results presented mainly from Gaudergrat ridge in Swiss Alps. Finds comparisons encouraging but reports some difficulty in adequately representing complex alpine topography with available computing power.
Notes:
