car·bon di·ox·ide snow

solid carbon dioxide used in the treatment of warts, lupus, nevi, and other skin affections, and as a refrigerant.
Synonym(s): dry ice

snow

(sno) a freezing or frozen mixture consisting of discrete particles or crystals.
carbon dioxide snow  solid carbon dioxide, formed by rapid evaporation of liquid carbon dioxide; it gives a temperature of about −79°C (−110°F). It is used in cryotherapy to freeze and anesthetize the skin and, in the form of a slush (carbon dioxide slush), as an escharotic to destroy skin lesions and as a peeling agent for chemabrasion.

Medians of nonzero snow depth and snowfall amounts provide an indication of typical amounts when snow depth or snowfall are present.
The negative relationship between the presence of flowering individuals and precipitation during the dormant season appears to contradict fringed-orchid response to snow depth because most precipitation fell as snow during this period; however, this discrepancy may be a result of the averaging of precipitation across all dormant months (October to March), whereas snow depth was analyzed by month from November to March.
About 30 minutes later, the two determined the average snow depth was 13 inches and that it contained about 5.
Aspect is generally used as a covariate in habitat use studies because of its influence on snow depth, vegetation, and temperature (Bilbao 2008).
We also investigated how tree density covaries with snow depth which may hinder use of sites with relatively high tree density.
In addition to snow depth, other environmental factors that potentially influence ice algae biomass were investigated.
In order to determine the study area's effective distance, the correlation between the snow depth and the corresponding wind shelter index with each point for each of the selected distances 60, 100, 300, 500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 meters was tested, figure 7, shows the snow depth transmittal diagrams for each of the wind shelter index amounts, for different distances with determination ratios for each one.
Application for snow depth sensing is demonstrated in Figure 2, where [h.
Some Stations provide daily snowfall, snow depth, evaporation, and soil temperature data.
Besides, assimilation effects from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) of snow cover fraction products as well as snow cover fraction and snow depth estimation from the Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA)-National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Snow Algorithm (ANSA) product are analyzed and discussed in details by Liu et al.
First, we quantified compaction caused by snowshoeing during the first sampling by measuring snow depth (increments of 5 cm) and sink depth of a penetrometer (150-g cylinder with a basal surface area of 34 [cm.
This article addresses this problem by exploiting variation in winter snow depth across states as an exogenous source of variation to social capital formation.
