Suppression of Evaporation from Snow-Fields

Article English OPEN
Groth, Kjell (2011)

An outline is given of the possibilities to utilize surface films for the suppression of evaporation from snow surfaces. Special measures must be taken to ensure the spreading of the films at the low temperatures in question. Preliminary laboratory and field experiments demonstrate the effect of fatty alcohol films on snow, but definite conclusions as to the ultimate possibilities of the methods and feasibility of their application on a large scale cannot yet be drawn.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1957.tb01868.x
