Where has all the snow gone? Snowpack sublimation in northern Arizona / Charles C. Avery, Leland R. Dexter, Robert R. Wier, William G. Delinger, Aregai Tecle, Robert J. Becker.

Title: Where has all the snow gone? Snowpack sublimation in northern Arizona / Charles C. Avery, Leland R. Dexter, Robert R. Wier, William G. Delinger, Aregai Tecle, Robert J. Becker.

Date: 1992.
In: Western Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1992.), Vol. 60th Annual Meeting (1992)
Abstract: Climatic data for 21 winters was used to construct index to assess significance of evaposublimation at Flagstaff, AZ. Instrument to record evaposublimation was developed and preliminary data are presented which compare values from instrument to index values for periods in 1990-91 and 1991-92; relatively good agreement was found. At least 22% and up to 70% of snowpack at this site may be lost through sublimation. Therefore, date of snowpack accumulation is critical to runoff efficiency of high-elevation snowpacks.
