Snow Cohesiveness

Final
Cohesion refers to the attraction between similar materials and the ability of the grains to interconnect. Fresh cold, dry snow lacks cohesion because it lacks intergranular contacts. As snow ages, the number of grain contacts increases, and thus, cohesion increases. The compressive strength of the displaced snow increases because of the cohesion of the increased number of closely packed particles.
