  • Improvement and validation of a snow saltation model using wind tunnel measurements
  • Aeolian features ; Aeolian transport ; Experimentation ; Mass movement ; Model ; Saltation ; Snow
  • A Lagrangian snow saltation model has been extended for application to a wide variety of snow surfaces. The model is modified to include various parameterizations of aspects of the saltation process, and to allow comparison with single height

  • SnowModel, a physically-based snow evolution modeling system that includes 4 submodels - MicroMet, EnBal, Snowpack, and SnowTran-3D - was used to simulate 8 full-year (1998/99 through 2005/06) evolutions of snow accumulations, blowing snow
  • sublimation, evaporation, snow and ice surface melt, runoff, and mass changes on the entire Mittivakkat Glacier. This model was used to describe the variations in snow distribution and surface melt over an arctic East Greenland glacier through this period.

  • The paper deals with the influence of snow conditions on periglacial landforms. The research was carried out on four study sites in the summit parts of the Krkonoše Mountains with occurrence of recently active periglacial landforms. The results
  • prove that there is a dose relationship between the low snow cover and occurrence of sorted circles and that the distribution of peat hummocks has not any connection with snow cover. Relationship between solifluction lobes and ploughing blocks and snow

  • Observation sites in this study are located primarily along the Qinghai-Xizang (Tibetan) Highway. Analysis is focused on air and soil temperature, soil moisture, freeze-thaw depths, and snow depth in years of normal (1998/1999) and abnormally heavy
  • (1997/1998) snow cover. Results indicate that anomalously deep snow cover influenced the pattern of soil freeze-thaw depth through its control over ground temperature. Snow cover can also contribute to the cooling process through its high albedo
  • . Interannual variations in snow depth have significant implications for the maintenance of Tibetan permafrost.

  • Changes in snow and ice of high-mountain areas are primarily climate driven and take place at increasing rates and on a worldwide scale. Realistic scenarios for the European Alps indicate that glaciers could largely disappear within the coming
  • decades already and increasing thermal anomalies are likely to affect permafrost down to depths below surface exceeding 100 meters. Seasonal snow may become restricted to high altitudes and a few winter months. With such developments, pronounced
