The table to the right gives
the porosity fraction for various snow fences and the
resulting snow storage capacity (Qc). Qc
is calculated using the formula on the right.
For the case study
at Lamberton, the porosity for the twin-row planting
of honeysuckle was 0.70. Assuming the honeysuckle
height to be 6.5 ft (1.98 m), the snow storage capacity
was 30.5 t/m.
