Geometry and Density of Drifts Formed by Snow Fences
Journal of Glaciology
AbstractThis paper presents results from studies of snow-drifts formed by vertical-slat "Canadian" and horizontal-slat "Wyoming" snow fences having 50% porosity and heightsHfrom 0.8 to 3.8 m, on nearly level terrain. Characteristics of equilibrium lee drifts behind the Wyoming fence include cross-sectional area 19.3H2, length 30H, maximum depth 1.20H. and water-equivalent volume 6.8H2.18. Up-wind drift dimensions include maximum depth 0.5Hand length 12H. Drifts behind Canadian fences are aboutdoi:10.1017/s0022143000010935 fatcat:6h55f5yqfjdhjfzvphb7qztx4m
