Record #112851:

A scaled index of winter severity / Phillip E. Farnes.

Title: A scaled index of winter severity / Phillip E. Farnes.
Author(s): Farnes, Phillip E.
Date: 1991.
In: Western Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1991.), Vol. 59th Annual Meeting (1991)
Abstract: Procedure for indexing severity of winter would be helpful to wildlife managers and general public in understanding how mild or how severe conditions are for any given season or month. Describes scheme with scale from -4.0 for most severe to +4.0 for mildest, with 0 being near normal winter. Index is based on minimum daily temperatures, snow depth, snow water equivalent, snow density, and precipitation accumulation. Weightings and threshold for each parameter can be changed to represent different species; stations can be accumulated or weighted to represent winter range areas; months can be looked at individually or accumulated seasonally.
