Snowflake Shapes

As you learned in the Snowflake Primer, the shape (morphology) of snowflakes is dependent on climatic conditions. This snow morphology diagram illustrates how temperature and humidity (or supersaturation) affect the shapes of snow crystals. You can engage your students in predicting the shape of snowflakes by collecting data on temperature and humidity whenever it snows, […]
