MASC Showcase: Snowflakes in Freefall


For more information about this University of Utah and National Science Foundation project, please visit the Snowflake Stereography and Fallspeed home page or email Tim Garrett. All images are copyright Tim Garrett, and are freely available for educational or non-commercial use. Otherwise, please contact Tim Garrett.

This is a gallery of snowflake images captured in freefall at Alta Ski Area using the University of Utah MASC (Multi Angle Snowflake Camera). When it is snowing, images of snowflakes captured live in free fall can be found at Alta's Snowflake Showcase.

Images are taken at f/5.6 with an exposure of up to 1/40,000th of a second using 1.2MP and 5MP industrial cameras with lenses ranging from 12 mm to 35 mm. The image resolution ranges from 9 micrometers to 40 micrometers.

Click on any image to see it in full resolution and to play a slide show.

Donations to continue the Snowflake Showcase at Alta Ski Area are welcomed.
