Abstract

In an effort to understand the possible outcomes of in-situ burning on snow and ice in Arctic regions, an experiment to study the effect of oil and snow in various conditions was proposed, conducted, and analyzed. Experiments were conducted with various ratios of oil to snow and with different spill diameters, while recording the snow packing densities. The influences of each of these three parameters were characterized and the groundwork for further investigation was drafted.
