Dani Golub’s Extra Credit Lab AOS 101 Experimental Procedure: 1. This photo was taken on January 6 th , 2010 in St. Paul, Minnesota of a snowflake on someone’s coat. 2. On this day, an Alberta Clipper snowed over a half foot of snow over the already deep snow pack over St. Paul, Minnesota. The newly fallen snow along with gusty winds, caused considerable blowing and drifting snow. The area had a light snowfall, coupled with windy conditions which caused slow travel on the road and in the air for the next few days. The temperature was around 10 degrees F on that day. 3. According to the Magono snow identification chart, I would say this snowflake is a plate with dendritic extensions (P2g). 4. According to the online calculator, the dew point temperature is 3.42 degrees F and the dry bulb temperature is 10 degrees F. 5. The supersaturation is 0.14 g/m 3 and the snow particle’s vapor pressure is 2 g/m

The temperature was 10 degrees F and the dew point temperature was 3.42 degrees F. 3. According to the Magono snow identification chart, I would say this snowflake is a plate with dendritic extensions (P2g). 4. Since the dew point is only 3.42 degrees F, the vapor density of the air is 2 g/m 3 . 5. The supersaturation is 0.14 g/m 3 . 6. 0.14= 2-p v , sat, I the vapor density of the snow particle is 1.86 g/m 3. 7....
