studebaker hoch: How does a compass help find an accoustic target under three feet of snow?

Do bats need compasses to fly inside of caves?


my guess would be a constant to use as a baseline to make calculations against in a vast, essentially featureless snowscape.

Not all canids are as graceful, of course.

my guess would be a constant to use as a baseline to make calculations against in a vast, essentially featureless snowscape.

That's an interesting idea.  There isn't enough information in a single point of light, for instance, for an airplane pilot to navigate without instruments to provide directional information.

But the fox is in bright daylight, every ice crystal shining in the sun.  He knows where "up" is.

Does he get lost IN the snow?
