AbstractThe Snow and Ice Section of the Division has developed as part of its responsibility for research into Snow and Ice a great interest in the energy balance at natural surfaces. The information now available on this subject has been applied in this preliminary study of the feasibility of using dusting as a means of accelerating spring break-up by influencing the solar energy absorption properties of ice surfaces in early spring.
