Only a tiny proportion of mainland Australia (0.1%) carries snow in winter but its significance for conservation, water supply and recreation is considerable, and substantial economic interests are involved. Many of the effects of snow on the landscape are expressed through the vegetation and hydrology, but as these topics are discussed by other contributors we shall confine our attention to the effects of snow on the landforms.
