Record #153971:

Alpine snow records / William J. Burroughs.

Title: Alpine snow records / William J. Burroughs.
Author(s): Burroughs, William J.
Date: 2000.
In: Weather. (2000.), Vol. 55(3) (2000)
Abstract: Discusses heavy snowfalls in Alps with relevance to weather conditions, trends and possible climate change. Though some heavy falls lead to devastating avalanches, many are set off by skiers themselves, and so pattern of loss of life may continue, despite improvements in forecasting.
