Abstract : This project was undertaken to define the important unresolved issues involving snow and ice. The Terrestrial Sciences Program directed by Dr. Russell Harmon at the Army research Office has as one of its responsibilities the funding of research that will advance knowledge about snow and ice mechanics. In 1981 a workshop involving the properties of snow was sponsored jointly by NSF and ARO to determine the important unresolved problems. This workshop sponsored by this grant is the first since that time to again discuss the current state-of-the-art and to ask what are the important unresolved problems. The workshop was held October 3-6 1995 at the 320 Ranch near Bozeman, Montana and was divided into two parts, one to discuss ice and the other to address issues involving snow. The ice session was chaired by Dr. Erland Schulson of Dartmouth College, and the snow session was chaired by Dr. Robert L. Brown of Montana State University. Approximately 45 leading scientists and engineers from the United States and six other countries participated in the workshop. The findings were presented in a workshop report.
