Snowpack physics explored at Fall Meeting



A special session, “Snowpack Physics: Processes and Distributions,” was held on December 10 at the Fall 1991 AGU Meeting to survey applications of snow physics spanning scales from millimeters to kilometers, and to tie these in with recent advances in our understanding of the micro- and meso scale processes in a snow cover.

The first half of the session involved the relationships between snow physical process and properties and remote sensing, snowgas interactions, and snowmelt chemistry.
