AbstractSnow is a material the properties of which vary considerably. The conditions and features of the snow which determine its properties are discussed and standardized methods and instruments for measuring these characteristics are described. The principal applications of the measurements are: (a) snow-cover surveys for obtaining data on snow conditions in different localities and (b) performance trials of winter equipment in which it is desirable to define the snow conditions that occur during the trials. The reportincludes a snow nomenclature and general information on snow which may be helpful to observers.
