Under melt–freeze conditions crusts may evolve within a snowpack, which may favour avalanche initiation by forming a hard bed surface for weakly bonded faceted grains. We used a parallel-probe saturation profiler (PPSP) to record the distribution of water contents within the snowpack. Diurnal effects of melt–freeze action on the growth of crusts were monitored with the help of the PPSP device. Saturation profiles were collected from a partially wet snow cover. Snow stratigraphy was conducteddoi:10.3189/172756410791386418 fatcat:6um3zumrjjahvbdm3huujfft5u
