Record #103828:

Quantitative approximation of mountain glacial climates / William W. Locke.

Title: Quantitative approximation of mountain glacial climates / William W. Locke.
Author(s): Locke, William W.
Date: 1990.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1990.), Vol. 14 (1990)
Abstract: Winter precipitation at equilibrium line altitude of wide selection of modern mountain glaciers is well explained by multiple regression using summer temperature and logarithm of continentality (distance from moisture source) as independent variables. Continentality serves as proxy for inland decreases in energy input through longwave radiation and condensation and increasing energy losses through evaporation and sublimation. Winter precipitation in presently inaccessible areas and former precipitation across broad regions can thus be estimated accurately from two simple variables.
Notes:

Keywords: 551.582 -- Climatology of particular places.
