|About 20% of the earth
dry land is permanently covered by snow. In the winter
about 40% of the northern hemisphere lands are covered
by snow. That is why thousands of scientists and
engineers around the world research different aspects of
snow. Some focus on snow control on roads, snow
engineering and avalanches. Some others research
materials and equipment that facilitates our lives on
snow. Meteorologists work on characterization and
climate aspects of snow while geologists are more
interested on glacial and their effects on the earth
The four projects listed above
are not the only projects that students can do related to snow.
Everything from chemical properties, physical properties, shapes
of snow flakes, causes and the effects of snow can be subjects
of different science projects.
