Snow Water Acidity in Wyoming


The knowledge of snow chemical characteristics is of interest to many sciences. The acidity of snow water can explain the dissolution of calcareous rocks and soils and snow can carry chemical elements to soils on which it falls. A combination of these factors is important for plant production.

Acidity of snow waters found in Wyoming's mountainous areas are compared to results of measurements made by the Author in the French Alps in 1964 The study is based on observations made in Wyoming from December, 1965, to May, 1966. Charts and tabular results are presented and discussed.
