ESTIMATED SNOW PARAMETERS FOR VEHICLE MOBILITY MODELING IN KOREA, GERMANY AND INTERIOR ALASKA

Snow is a crucial factor affecting the U.S. Army's operations in cold regions. Values for snow depth and snow density are needed for vehicle mobility studies, but unfortunately the available historical records of these parameters tend to be relatively sparse. This report deals with the estimation of snow density and snow depth from readily available parameters such as air temperature and wind speed. As a basis for further study, the authors have summarized previous work in three areas of particular interest to the U.S. Army's vehicle mobility programs: Korea, Germany and Alaska. Empirical models are presented for estimating snow parameters in these regions.
