Somewhere in the world, it's snowing. But you don't need to go far—it's always snowing on this page. Explore light flurries, snowflake families and individual flakes. There are many unusual snowflakes and snowflake family 12 and family 46 are very interesting.
This is the example snowflake used in In Silico Flurries: Computing the world of snow.
The flake's ranking relative to other flakes with respect to each parameter is shown as a z-score (`(x-\mu)/\sigma`) and percentile.
These are the original simulation images. Each snowflake was grown on a 800 × 800 hexagonal grid.
