HUT model has now been adapted to be able to use snow specific surface area (SSA) measurements! The HUT model was originally designed to use traditional grain size measurements made with a microscope, but these were observer-dependent. SSA are objective observations so this progress removes some uncertainty in interpreting remote sensing observations. For details, see the open access paper by Will Maslanka here:
