Abstract : The article is based on experimental data for Novosibirskaya Oblast and for Kol'skoye Peninsula for the winters of 1965-1966 and 1966-1967. A brief description of installations and instruments for observations is given. Observation methods are set forth. Experimental findings treated by a statistical method afford tracing changes in solid consumption of snow-wind flow as a function of elevation. An attempt is made at estimating existing theoretical developments and empirical functions from the viewpoint of the experimental data presented. (Author)
