In this study we quantify 1) changes in spatial and aspatial characteristics of the shear strength of a buried surface hoar layer, and 2) identify characteristics in terrain, vegetation and snow stratigraphy that can help clarify some of the variation in shear strength. The study site is a relatively uniform 31 m by 31 m slope in southwest Montana. A local coordinate system linked terrain, vegetation and snow information.
