AGNPS Winter Routines

AGNPS winter routines are not currently active in the model. After testing they could be activated. The winter routines would handle daily accumulation of snowpack, compaction & settling, and snowmelt. They would track snowpack layer temperatures and liquid moisture content, as well as soil temperature/ moisture content and the freeze-thaw process. The presence of frozen or previously frozen soil layers would be used to adjust the curve number and soil erodibility (K-factor) for potential sheet & rill erosion.
