There are several energy fluxes involved in the melting of snow. Handbook of Snow: Principles, Processes, Management, and Use. These fluxes can act in opposing directions, that is either delivering heat to or removing heat from the snowpack. Ground heat flux is the energy delivered to the snowpack from the soil below by conduction. Radiation inputs to the snowpack include net shortwave (solar radiation including visible and ultraviolet light) and longwave (infrared) radiation. Net shortwave radiation is the difference in energy received from the sun and that reflected by the snowpack because of the snowpack albedo.

Comments to eBook Handbook of Snow: Principles, Processes, Management and Use

I have had the hardback edition and referred to it for years. This is about 95% complete and is definitely a "must have" for anyone involved in snow - avalanches, construction, transportation (roads, railroads, bridges), alpine and nordic ski areas. There is even a chapter on skis and skiing.

This is a substantial tome. Do not look here for the biology and physics of snow. This is the practical, hands-on side. The science of snow is changing rapidly as we learn more in the face of global climate weirding. Atmospheric freezing levels are rising and snow metamorphism as we are used to it is changing. There are distinct differences in snow climates (maritime, continental and variations) that this book does not address. This is a very important "first step" that brings the breadth and depth of otherwise critical snow information together in one place.

As human population increases and there is more pressure to understand and make use of watersheds and airsheds for recreation, safety, potable water, construction and transportation, this book should be close at hand.

Everything you ever wanted to know about snow (and ice) but were afraid to ask...The title of the book says it all, and it's a shame this book is out of print. The technical information on snow and ice formation and morphology simply doesn't go out of date. Even the information on control and design of structures for snow loading is still valid. And, as a bonus, there's a large section on the history of recreation and snow, including ski technology and development. Many of my textbooks have been put away in the back corner of the bookshelves, but this one sits in the midst of my other working technical reference books.

Being a student of snow hydrology and avalanches at the university, this book is a must-have.

It says on the webpage at amazon that it's printed in 2004, so I thought "Hey, a new edition!", but it appeared that it's a reprint of the 1981-edition.

Nevertheless, the book covers all aspects of snow, and little has changed since 1981 regarding the properties of snow. In some areas it would've been helpful with some more up-to-date figures and facts, but in general, it's a stayer in its field. No fancy pictures, but well written in a not too scientific language. I must admit, my friends and family just laugh whenever they catch me reading in it, calling me a geek.

Ok, I'm a geek, I think snow is worth a thorough study (and a Master's degree), and so the Handbook of Snow suits me quite perfectly. To scholars and students of geophysics and physical geography, engineers and all who need to know more than the average guy about snow, this is _the_ book. Well worth its price.

very comprehensive overview of most data available on snow science over the last century. The bibliographies alone are worth the price. While there may be more specific texts available on specific areas of interest,I have found none that covers as many aspects. Most books focus on avalanche safety for example with some cursory science to go with it. This book at 776 pages in length examines most aspects of snow science as well as the disciplines of most interest, ie; avalanches and control of them, transportation, recreation, military, and the related science for each area. The book covers the physics and chemistry of snow in each chapter as it applies to that area of interest in a manner that is user friendly to the layman.
