Record #126372:

Recent observed trends and modelled interannual variability in Canadian snow cover / R.D. Brown, Barry E. Goodison.

Title: Recent observed trends and modelled interannual variability in Canadian snow cover / R.D. Brown, Barry E. Goodison.
Author(s): Brown, R. D.
Goodison, Barry E.
Date: [1993]
In: Eastern Snow Conference. Proceedings. ([1993]), Vol. 50th Annual Meeting ([1993])
Abstract: Analysis of daily snow-depth data revealed consistent reduction in duration of snow cover from 1955 to 1989, most marked in southern prairies and western Canada. Decrease was mainly in spring in association with significantly warmer temperatures. Analysis of reconstructed data from 1900 in western prairies, southern Ontario and maritime provinces revealed quite different responses and scales of variability. However, characteristic feature of data was trend towards increasing snow-cover duration from late 1920s to late 1960s, followed by rapid decrease during 1970s and 1980s. Lack of consistent relationship between snow cover and air temperature highlighted complex nature of snow--climate interactions in Canada.
