Abstract : Systematic observations of snow density were begun in Russia in 1903-04. However, sufficient data on snow density were not collected even for such regions of European USSR as the Ukraine and the Northeast at the time the quantitative survey of water resources was made. Data on density are scarcest for Siberia, especially the mountain regions. The necessity for calculating the water equivalent in the snow cover stimulated the investigation of the quantitative effects of the principal meteorological factors on snow settling during winter and spring snow melting.
