Record #30835:

Compactibility of newly fallen snow in eastern Canada / G.P. Williams.

Title: Compactibility of newly fallen snow in eastern Canada / G.P. Williams.
Author(s): Williams, G. P.
Date: 1958.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1958.), Vol. 3(24) (1958)
Abstract: Critical density of newly fallen snow was measured during winter 1956-57 in Ottawa and in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Relative compacted density or compactibility was found to depend on undisturbed density and snow temperature. Statistical equation was developed relating snow temperature and undisturrbed density to compacted density. Additional tests in cold-room conditions indicate that grain size and grain-size distribution also have effect on compacted density.
