Record #112037:

Predicting snow stability for regional avalanche forecasting / Sue Ann Ferguson.

Title: Predicting snow stability for regional avalanche forecasting / Sue Ann Ferguson.
Author(s): Ferguson, Sue Ann.
Date: 1991.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1991.), Vol. 72(44, supplement) (1991)
Abstract: AGU Fall Meeting Program and Abstracts, December 9-13, 1991. Can be approximated by modelling snow-layer stratigraphy from meteorological parameters. By using atmospheric prognostic models and assumptions of crystal growth versus lifting mechanisms in atmosphere, stratigraphic changes can be predicted one or two days in advance. Newly developed computer program that models metamorphism in layered snowpack is being tested in Washington Cascades.
