AbstractThe critical density of newly fallen snow was measured during the 1956-57 winter season attwo stations: Montrcal Road Laboratories of the National Research Council, Ottawa, and the Universityof New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick. The relative compacted density or compactibility ofnewly fallen snow was found to depend on undisturbed density and snow temperature. A statistical equationwas developed relating snow temperature and unclisturbed density to the compacted density of the snowsample. Additional tests undcr cold room conditions indicate that grain size and grain-size distribution alsohave an appreciable effect on compacted density.
