AbstractThis report analyses the snow cover characteristics measured at the two Arctic stations of Resolute and Aklavik from 1947 to 1954 under the sponsorship of the Associate Committee on Soil and Snow Mechanics of the National Research Council of Canada. Frequency diagrams show considerable difference between the snow properties at these two stations. Graphical comparisons are made to show depth-time variation of hardness, density, and grain size. The close relation between snow density, hardness, and temperature gradient is also shown graphically.
