This paper deals with the beginning of a research project dedicated to the study of snow distribution caused by wind. This project is based on the analysis of snow depths and meteorological data. These data have been collected on a Swiss site: The Stillberg.
The measurement collection started in 1958. The first twelve years have been analysed. The analysis has begun with the selection of the snow transport events with strong and regular winds. Then, for each event, a map of snow balance and snow depth profiles have been produced.
These graphic documents show the location of zones with suitable conditions for drifted snow to be accumulated.
