Short summary
Drifting snow sublimation (DSS) is of glaciological and hydrological importance. This work is related to the simulation of DSS, which is obviously related to the scientific topics, such as multi-field coupling of wind, snow particles, humidity, etc. Previous studies argued that sublimation will soon vanish in saltation layer. This work shows the sublimation rate of saltating snow can be several orders of magnitude greater than that of the suspended snow due to the impact of moisture advection.
