Description: Research Report
Summary: Derivations are developed to permit application of thin section analysis, similar to that employed in geology and mineralogy, to the special problem of determining particle size distribution of snow from sections cut through the snow. Equations are derived to permit transformation of data from either 1-dimensional random cuts (chords) through the particle cross sections or from 2-dimensional cuts (cross-sectional areas) of the particles. The case for the rectangular distribution and the case for the normal distribution are discussed in the appendix.
