Abstract : During the conference a session was held to determine if there is a common ground with respect to the kinds of experiments which should be conducted to determine snow properties. It was intended that this session result in brief statements fof types of experiments, control of conditions necessary, and the proper reporting of data required to make the results of experiments conducted have maximum value to the snow research community. These brief reports cover the subjects of blowing snow, acoustics of snow and acoustical emissions, reflectance and thermal emission, snow classification, sliding ski resistance, electrical properties tests, mechanical properties, tests, measurement of density and velocity in moving snow, and snowpack temperature profiles.
