Paper Abstract

The optical properties of falling snow depend on physical characteristics such as snowflake size, density, and concentration. A semiempirical model is being developed to determine falling snow characteristics from micrometeorological conditions. The model is validated by comparing results to data taken during the U.S. Army SNOW ONE-A tests. Several of the inputs to the model are treated parametrically to provide a preliminary look at the sensitivity of optical properties to changes in meteorological variables.
