Record #166856:

Relationship between the saltation layer structure of drifting snow and meteorological and snow surface conditions / Takeshi Sato, Masao Higashiura.

Title: Relationship between the saltation layer structure of drifting snow and meteorological and snow surface conditions / Takeshi Sato, Masao Higashiura.
Author(s): Sato, Takeshi.
Higashiura, Masao.
Date: 2003.
Language: Japanese.
In: Seppyo : Journal of the Japanese Society of Snow and Ice. (2003.), Vol. 65(3) (2003)
Abstract: Reports field measurements of mass flux profile of near-surface drifting snow, analyzed according to Kawamura's (1948) expression for saltating sand. Determines parameters of saltation layer structure; saltation height of particles, h₀, mass flux at surface, q₀, and saltation layer height, hsal. Obtains snowdrift transport rate, Qsal, excluding heavy snowfall data. Describe these parameters' relationships to meteorological conditions, such as friction velocity, existence of snowfall, air temperature, and snow hardness inferred from air temperature and temporal change of snow depth. All parameters increase with friction velocity, are independent of snowfall and roughly consistent with results of wind tunnel experiments. Finds h₀ and hsal small, and q₀ and Qsal large, over snow surfaces with low hardness.
