Connectivity of snow particles

  • K. Itagaki (a1) and G.E. Lemieux (a1)

Abstract

An optical system, potentially suitable for quantitative characterization of snow, was conceived and tested. The system uses a laser beam to scan a thick section of snow impregnated with an opaque medium and observes light transmission through the slab.
