Record #29045:

The strength of snow in compression / Lorne W. Gold.

Title: The strength of snow in compression / Lorne W. Gold.
Author(s): Gold, Lorne W.
Date: 1956.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1956.), Vol. 2(20) (1956)
Abstract: Hardness observations found to depend on snow density, temperature and crystal size. Strength is highly variable, and variability is attributed to unstable bonding between individual snow grains.
Notes:

Journal of Glaciology. Vol. 2(20) :719-725 (1956).
