Paper Abstract

Snow precipitation takes a variety of forms depending on the conditions in the atmosphere at the time of the snowfall. Regardless of what particular conditions prevail at that time, once the snow particles reach the ground they immediately begin changing. This is not surprising since the snow cover is at or close to its melting temperature, has a very large specific surface area, and has ever changing boundary conditions.
