Influence of rain, air temperature, and snow cover on subsequent spring-snowmelt infiltration into thin frozen soil layer in northern Japan
Summary In cold regions, thick frozen soil layers can significantly impede snowmelt infiltration and thus increase runoff of spring snowmelt water. This study aimed to clarify the relationshipExpand
