Fractal Model for Snow
We analyze the distribution of grains in solid cubes of ice in terms of deterministic and stochastic 3d fractal models. We argue that the fractal dimension D or the Hurst exponent H optimally describe the void distribution in the snow sample and can be used as a parameter to describe the mechanical properties of snow at different scales.
