Abstract:

Polar areas are plagued with drifting snow, with resulting problems in logistics and maintenance. A literature search on present knowledge of drift and drift control shows that laboratory tests on the physics of snow movement should be conducted using snow and material simulating snow for scale model studies. These tests then would further knowledge of drifting snow more quickly than can be obtained by field observation alone. However, the laboratory studies must be coupled with field tests in order to establish their validity. Author
