Title: Transport of intercepted snow from trees during snow storms

Author: Miller, David H.;

Date: 1966

Source: Res. Paper PSW-RP-033. Berkeley, Ca: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest & Range Experiment Station. 30 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Five principal processes by which intercepted snow in trees is removed during snow storms are described and evaluated as far as data permit: vapor flux from melt water, vapor flux from bodies of snow, stem flow and dripping of melt water, sliding of bodies of intercepted snow from branches, and wind erosion and transport of intercepted snow. Further research is suggested to evaluate each mass-transport process and to determine how it is affected by atmospheric and forest conditions.
