Abstract : When planning, designing, building and operating railroads and highways, traction and high-voltage substations and other projects in the territory of Western Siberia, it is necessary to consider the problem of snowdrifts. For preliminary estimation of the snowdrifts in the given area when no special drift gage observations are available, it is possible to use the data of the closest wheather stations by subjecting them to special processing. The results obtained after processing are used as the basis for compiling snow transport rose diagrams permitting correct orientation of the designed object and insurance of the required snow protection.
