This module contains the snow metamorphism routines of the SLF onedimensional snowpack model
It represents a truly international research effort: Dr. Bob "Borolo" Brown of montana state university (USA) provided a lot of the motivation and low temperature gradient microstructure physics; Dr. Michael provided project leadership, a sense of the practical and more importantly, the link to the avalanche warning group, i.e. he told everybody what to do; Dr. Pramod Sataywali (SASE, INDIA) came up with the high temperature gradient microstructure routines; Dr. Perry Bartelt wrote the code and integrated it into a very sensible continuum mechanics model that works pretty well.

Definition of some of the essential variables:
PRIMARY microstructure parameters computed by the Metamorphism routine:
SECONDARY microstructure parameters computed by Metamorphism routine:
SECONDARY microstructure parameters computed by routines found in Laws_sn.c:
These are the variables needed to compute these values of the ElementData class within the snowStation class:
The french metamorphism routines were written in November 1995 by Perry Bartelt and Martin Schneebeli. They were first used in the 2d snowpack code haefeli.
