  title={A dry snow pack model},
  author={John Mark Nicholas Timm Gray and L. W. Mor},
A dry snow pack is viewed as an interacting mixture of rigid ice grains and air occupying the pore space in the matrix. The three-dimensional mass, momentum and energy balances are formulated within the framework of interacting continua theory. The assumption of a common ice and air temperature is made to reflect the very slow relative motion between the air and ice. Focusing on a one-dimensional vertical snow pack, five constitutive postulates and two external prescriptions are made to obtain… CONTINUE READING
