Short summary
The results shown in the present paper consist in predicting the overall viscous behavior of snow from the sole knowledge of the microstructure and the ice viscous behavior. This is done thanks to multi-scale modeling techniques and an original approach is used to handle the nonlinearity of the ice behavior. An application of the developed formulation can be found in the simulation of the densification of the snowpack in order to enhance avalanche risk forecasting.
