Record #177279:

Experimental results on the formation of hard compacted snow in Rikubetsu in northern Japan: a first step toward the construction of a compacted-snow runway on the Antarctic Ice Sheet / Takao Kameda, Shuhei Takahashi, Kinji Hyakutake, Noriaki Kikuchi, Okitsugu Watanbe.

Title: Experimental results on the formation of hard compacted snow in Rikubetsu in northern Japan: a first step toward the construction of a compacted-snow runway on the Antarctic Ice Sheet / Takao Kameda, Shuhei Takahashi, Kinji Hyakutake, Noriaki Kikuchi, Okitsugu Watanbe.

Date: 2005.
In: Polar Meteorology and Glaciology. (2005.), Vol. 19 (2005)
Abstract: Describes construction of three test fields 20 m long, 7 m wide and 0.4-1.0 m thick on compacted basal snow. Construction comprised deposition of 0.1-0.35 m-thick layers of snow on basal snow using rotary snowplough, surface smoothing with excavator and compaction four times with bulldozer. Process was repeated three or four times. Investigates ram hardness, snow density and snow structure. Compares meteorological conditions during experiments with those at East Antarctic sites. Concludes snow in form of three 0.2-0.25 m-thick layers compacted four times by bulldozer would be sufficiently hard to serve as runway for wheeled C-130 at proposed Antarctic site near Syowa Station.
