Knowledge of the growth of ice crystals In both wet and dry snow has evolved steadily over many years. Dry snow is characterized by rounded crystals growing slowly at low temperature gradients. Wet snow is characterized by clusters of grains at low liquid contents and poorly bonded slush at high liquid contents. Melt-freeze cycles greatly influence wet snow as well. Information was first gained through field observations, then laboratory tests, and then physical modeling. Advances have been… CONTINUE READING
