With cold weather and the Winter Olympics currently upon us, we bring you a special winter-themed video from JFM and FYFD. Featuring interviews with researchers from the APS DFD 2017 conference discussing their work on snow friction, granular flows and freezing bubbles.

This video is part of an ongoing series as part of a collaboration between the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and FYFD. Sponsored by FYFD, the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, and the UK Fluids Network. Produced by Tom Crawford and Nicole Sharp with assistance from A.J. Fillo.
