AbstractPreliminary analyses of data collected to date by the Canadian Snow Survey give encouraging indications of the possibility of correlating snow cover properties to climate. It was found that now density in exposed areas is dependent on a combination of wind velocity and temperature. The strength of the snow, as measured by its hardness and the thermal conductivity of the snow cover, also can be correlated to climate primarily through its dependence on the snow density.
