Abstract:

Different methods of measuring snow transport in laboratory and field conditions are examined. It is noted that existing procedures of measuring snow transport using the VO-2 snowstorm gauges are imprecise and so cannot be recommended for practical use. The method of measuring snow transport based on the photoelectric effect is highlighted. Author
