AbstractEvery winter, for several months, almost the whole of Canada is covered with snow.The economic consequences of this are considerable. but they have long been acceptedas commonplace and inevitable. Only recently has any attempt been made to study the properties and variations of snow scientifically. This is the first step towards forecasting its behavior and towards learning how best to exercise some measure of control over snow. Canadians have followed the remarkable progress made in Europe in this work and are glad to have an opportunity to pay tribute to Professor H. \V:son Ahlmann's distinguished contributions to the study of snow and glaciers. It therefore seems fitting to present in this volume the results of the first comprehensive snow study ever made of Canada.
