Record #84804:

Micro-meteorological conditions for snow melt / Michael Kuhn.

Title: Micro-meteorological conditions for snow melt / Michael Kuhn.
Author(s): Kuhn, Michael.
Date: 1987.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1987.), Vol. 33(113) (1987)
Abstract: Investigates conditions exactly at onset or end of melt, using air temperature, humidity, and, as radiation term, sum of global and reflected short-wave plus downward long-wave radiation. For turbulent exchange in boundary layer, examples are computed with transfer coefficient of 18.5 W m⁻² K⁻¹, corresponding to average over ablation period on Alpine glacier. Shows that snow may melt at air temperatures of -10°C and may stay frozen at +10°C.
Notes:

Journal of Glaciology. Vol. 33(113) :24-26 (1987).

Keywords: 551.578.462 -- Snow cover, ablation.
551.584.34 -- Microclimates, snow and ice surfaces.
E10 -- Glaciology: snow and avalanches.
