Record #112843:

Climatology of snowfall-event characteristics at Denver / Jennifer Luppens Mahoney.

Title: Climatology of snowfall-event characteristics at Denver / Jennifer Luppens Mahoney.
Author(s): Mahoney, Jennifer Luppens.
Date: 1991.
In: Western Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1991.), Vol. 59th Annual Meeting (1991)
Abstract: Snowfall event is defined as period during which any type of frozen precipitation occurs. Break between events occurs when 12 h elapses without precipitation. Hourly surface observations from 1948-88 were examined for these features. Characteristics such as diurnal oscillations in snowfall, preferred beginning/ending time of event, and temperature and wind patterns were considered. Hoped to improve snowfall forecasts.
