Science of Snow

Posted By Jacklyn Duff, Monday, December 23, 2013

Happy Holidays! We hope everyone is staying warm. Here are a few links to articles on snow science.

 

Here are two links to the National Snow and Ice data center. They describe types of snow and how snow forms. You can learn things like if snowballs are falling from the sky, it is called graupeling and some snowflakes are 2 inches wide.

This article investigates what snow on Mars would look like (note: do not look into the sun).
