Abstract We provide a description of the structural and thermal characteristics of snow cover in the Snowy Mountains of southeast Australia. Using the snow classification system developed by Sturm et al. (1995), the snow cover in the Snowy Mountains is classified primarily as maritime in areas where there is sufficient accumulation, and as ephemeral at lower elevations and on ablating aspects. Maritime snow is generally deep (>100 cm), with a density >0.30 g cm−3. The snow-ground interface is… CONTINUE READING
