AbstractThe importance to the snow-ground thermal interaction of non- linear effects associated with temperature dependent soil thermal conductivity and with soil latent heat is discussed. Numerical model calculations are presented which indicate that the modification of mean annual ground temperatures associated with these effects can be of the same magnitude as the warming due directly to the seasonal snow cover.
