### Abstract

The equations of motion (continuity and momentum balance) for a dispersed, negatively buoyant particulate of snow entrained in a turbulent airflow contain apparent turbulent forces or turbulent particle buoyancies. These turbulent buoyancies arise from the constitutive assumption that the turbulent fluctuations of the snow phase velocity vector, and the drift snow density are proportional to the deviatoric mean rate of deformation tensor for the airflow. For an established, discretized airflow regime, the momentum balance equation for the snow phase can be solved by finite difference techniques for the snow particle velocity field. The snow phase continuity equation can then be solved for the drift snow density field. (from authors' abstract)
