The interactions between atmosphere and snowpack are important for modelling the boundary layer (BL) over snow surfaces. To study these interactions, the mesoscale local model (LM) of the German Meteorological Service is applied for simulations over Greenland at a horizontal resolution of about...
The albedo of snow is determined in part by the size and shape of snow crystals, especially in the short wave infrared (SWIR). Many models of snow albedo represent snow crystals by spheres of surface/volume ( S / V ) ratio equal to that of snow crystals. However, the actual S / V ratio of snow...
A series of experiments were done for the cooling effect of sloped crushed-rock revetments with different particle sizes under wind action in this study. The crushed-rock particle sizes include four kinds: 6–8, 14–16, 21–23 and 28–30 cm. The experimental result indicates that, under the...
The snow cover model SNOWPACK simulates snow stratigraphy for the locations of automatic snow and weather stations. Based on the stratigraphy, snow stability is predicted by calculating three stability indices. We verified the performance of the skier stability index SK 38 . Since the index...
Skiing sports have experienced a significant boost in the 1990s when the classical ski geometry was replaced by a deep side cut ski, the carving ski. The geometrical and mechanical characteristics of modern carving skis are adjusted to typical turn radii, such that the skis cut through the snow...
Glacier de Taconnaz is a hanging glacier in the Mont-Blanc area with an upper accumulation area stretching from Dôme du Goûter (4300 m a.s.l.) down to a wide ice cliff at an altitude of about 3300 m a.s.l., over which flows most of the ice accumulated upstream. During winter, ice blocks...
An oscillator circuit-based capacitive method is used to study the ice/water phase transition in cohesive porous materials like water-filled fused glass beads. It straightforwardly gives the temperature domain of supercooling, freezing, or melting. It also provides an estimation of the ice...
