A snow mold that appears to be in the molding of snow in an area in Georgia could be a new form of mold.
It’s been known to develop in the winter and be spread in the spring, but scientists believe this is the first time this has been seen in the United States.
The mold, dubbed the “Snowman,” appears to have been spreading from Florida to Georgia, and is spreading at a faster rate than any other known species of mold, according to a new study.
The new study, published in Science Advances, was led by researchers from Georgia Tech, the University of Florida, and the University at Albany.
The researchers say they have discovered a “major new threat” of this mold to the state of Georgia, where there is an outbreak of the mold in the summer months.
Georgia has the second-highest number of snowmelt deaths in the country and more than 1,000 cases of the fungus have been reported.
It has been known since at least 2006 that this mold could cause frostbite, and that it can cause more severe symptoms if inhaled.
It is often found in places like the Georgia Dome, and can cause severe frostbite if inhale it.
It can cause frost-related respiratory symptoms, such as chest pain, cough, and swelling.
The fungus can also cause pneumonia, although it can be difficult to diagnose.
It also can cause a skin infection called psoriasis, which can lead to permanent skin loss.
In fact, in 2015, the CDC reported that 1 in 5 people in the U.S. had been infected with the fungus.
“We are currently aware of two cases in Florida, one in Georgia, one each in Alabama and Tennessee,” said Jessica Smith, an associate professor in Georgia Tech’s College of Environmental Health Sciences and a co-author of the new study published in the journal Science Advancing.
“The CDC has confirmed a significant number of cases in the state and has recommended that we be more vigilant about the spread of this potentially life-threatening mold.”
Scientists from Georgia and Georgia Tech have been working together on research to determine the source of the snow mold and what it is causing, and to better understand the effects of its spores on the health of Georgia.
“A key question we are currently looking at is whether this snow mold can be transported across the border, or whether it is more likely to cause an outbreak in the other states that are susceptible,” said Smith.
In a previous study, scientists identified a fungus that was found in the soil in Georgia in 2014, and it was discovered that the mold was in a tree.
In addition, researchers have found mold in soil in the Georgia desert, but the mold is believed to be more prevalent in the Southern Plains and Southeast, where it has a much larger population, and in the South.
The University at Alabama at Birmingham also identified a new strain of the frost mold in 2014 and reported that it was spreading at an even faster rate, as a new disease.
The Georgia snow mold has also been found in South Carolina, and scientists are trying to figure out why that region is more susceptible.
It could be that in that region, it is easier for the fungus to get into the air, Smith said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also investigating the outbreak in Georgia.
It recommends that anyone who thinks they have been exposed to the fungus and should get tested for it, and they should immediately contact a doctor if they are infected.
