Definition: Blowing snow or drifting snow. Windborne snow may be redistributed from one part of the glacier to another. It contributes to the glacier-wide mass balance only when it is carried across a lateral boundary of the glacier, either inward or outward, or when it suffers sublimation instead of being redeposited.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
