Process (Snippets from a PowerPoint I Made Today)
How to Conduct a Case Study
Observe the snow crystal
Analyze its shape and complexity
Think about temperature and humidity
Take a big ol’ breath
Eat a big ol’ sandwich
Don’t eat the sandwich
Note the size and intricacies of the crystal’s branches, if any
Imagine the crystal’s journey from seed to snow
Pinpoint the conditions that created the snow crystal
How cold was it?
How wet was it?
Use the morphology diagram, you’ve got this!
