Snow mechanics



The International Symposium on Snow Mechanics was held April 1–5, 1974, in Grindelwald, Switzerland, under the sponsorship of the International Association of Hydrological Science.

The conference, organized by the International Commission on Snow and Ice, attracted participants from a number of countries to discuss the physical and mechanical fundamentals of snow. Four review papers provided the basis to which authors added new material for the consideration of the small, select group of snow mechanicians.
