Abstract : The snow cover and its variations are very important to agriculture and transportation. The most important is the drifting snow. But its behavior has not been well studied. The author tries to find similarities between the drifting snow and the transfer of heavy particles by liquid currents and in this way the author correlates the process of snow blizzard with the transfer process of sand particles in water and in air. The following 2 essential problems are taken into consideration: the structure of the transferred material as defined by its granulometric composition, and the weight of the transferred materials moving in a unit time period.
