Snow as Field-Teaching Medium for Earth Science.
Custer, Stephan Gregory
Journal of Geological Education, v39 n1 p34-43 Jan 1991
Snow is a widely available earth-science teaching medium which can be used to explore scientific concepts in the field, either directly or by analogy. Snow can be considered a mineral, sediment, sedimentary rock, or metamorphic rock. Natural processes such as crystal growth, melting, sedimentation, and metamorphism can be studied in practical time frames and principles extracted to other rocks. (Author/PR)
