composition (structure) of microelements in snow cover (or blanket of snow, or also ..see downwards)


Explanation:
Please note that "snegovoi" can be easily replaced with "snezhnyi":)

I would not advise to apply terms like
"microelements in snow" (mikroelementy v snegovom pokrove).

Another way to work-around this term is simple - microelement chemical structure of snow cover. You might also use "snow blanket" or "blanket of snow" instead of "snow cover".

Well, finally the following could be used to translate this Russian term.

1. Composition (structure) of microelements (discovered, found, determined, observable) in (the) blanket of snow (snow cover).

2. Microelement structure of show blanket

and even

3. Snow blanket microelement (chemical)composition (structure).

They use POKROV here in order to explain that chemical/physical analysis is to be carried out with portions of snow extracted from the blanket of snow. So, this can mean that they work not with simply every year snow (in winters happens:), but perhaps with something more stable (e.g., Antarctic snows). In this case, blanket is more appropriate than cover.

One additional advice: take Google with terms cited above and convince in right version you would choose.

Hope that have been helpful:)

microelement composition of snow


Explanation:
microelement composition of snow
Avoid using "snow cover" or "snow blanket". These are more poetic expression.
In studies of snow scientists usually dig out a tranch in a snow ( a "snow profile") or pull out a long cyllinder of packed snow (a "snow core"). Use which one is more appropriate to your case. Just "snow" is fine, too.
