Snow is a crucial factor affecting the U.S. Armys operations in cold regions. Values for snow depth and snow density are needed for vehicle mobility studies, but unfortunately the available historical records of these parameters tend to be relatively sparse. This report deals with the estimation of snow density and snow depth from readily available parameters such as air temperature and wind speed. As a basis for further study, the authors have summarized previous work in three areas of particular interest to the U.S. Armys vehicle mobility programs Korea, Germany and Alaska. Empirical models are presented for estimating snow parameters in these regions. AN
