Structural-evolutionary polymorphism of snow cover

The evolutionary theory of metamorphism of snow cover as an hierarchically organized community of growing crystals as developed by this author is used in examining the various partial structures of snow horizons reflecting polymorphous modifications to the sublimation-metamorphous cycle of snow. The measures of intercomponent connections of structural parameters and their spatiotemporal equivalence are introduced. The article furnishes an example of how to recognize, using these measures, polymorphous modifications of snow structures with the highest connectivity of different-substrate elements comprising them. Snow cover is characterized as an adaptive-evolutionary glaciosystem.
