Abstract: This report discusses the effect of solar radiation on the strength of in situ processed Peter snow. The effect of short term (less than 2 weeks) solar radiation on the strength of in situ processed snow sintering in the environment of Camp Century, Greenland, can be considered insignificant. Under the environmental conditions at Camp Century, an in situ processed snow deposit can achieve in 45 days 90 to 95% of the unconfined compressive strength of natural snow of comparable density at -9°C.
