You may have noticed the occasional solitary mound of snow just sitting there whilst all around there’s no other trace of the white stuff. The mystery of the mounds depends on several things - sun and the action of the snow ploughs in the city or the wind in the mountains. For this reason, estimating the total amount of snow that has fallen can be difficult, but it does help us to understand how much water we can reasonably use. A new study has just started using an innovative approach and radar waves to gain more insight into understanding the dynamics of snow.
