Branch Growth and Sidebranching in Snow Crystals

  title={Branch Growth and Sidebranching in Snow Crystals},
  author={Jon Nelson}
Why do some snow crystals have branches with many sidebranches, whereas other crystals have no sidebranches? To answer this question and gain an understanding of other common features of snow crystal branches, a macrostep model of branch growth is proposed. This model is developed using analyses of past experiments and established theoretical relations… CONTINUE READING
