Marge’s snow and ice competition continues!
Marge Porter, a TEA teacher who worked with Dr.
Jeffries did an ice thickness competition through her
journals. Since we have less than a week left, ice
thickness prediction contest is not possible. Instead,
I’d like to do heat flux calculations. With raw data
provided below, calculate snow density, thermal
conductivity, temperature gradient, and conductive
heat flux, and provide all of their units. The first
person that e-mails me the correct answers by Thursday
will receive a Poker Flat t-shirt. In your e-mail,
please include your t-shirt size as well.
For assistance, review the following
Conductive heat flux
Conductive heat flux, cont.
Find snow density, thermal
conductivity, temperature gradient, conductive heat
flux and their units.
Snow depth (for density)
