Record #166507:

Role of energy budget components on snow ablation from a mid-latitude prairie snowpack / Jamie L. Dyer, Thomas L. Mote.

Title: Role of energy budget components on snow ablation from a mid-latitude prairie snowpack / Jamie L. Dyer, Thomas L. Mote.
Author(s): Dyer, Jamie L.
Mote, Thomas L.
Date: 2002.
In: Polar Geography. (2002.), Vol. 26(2) (2002)
Abstract: Attempts to define mechanisms most responsible for initiation and continuation of rapid melt of a large winter snowpack in a mid-latitude prairie environment. Examines case study of 1996-1997 record snowpack in Red River Valley of eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota (period of rapid ablation led to catastrophic flooding). Incorporates snow dynamics model SNTHERM and snow observations to quantify snowpack characteristics, individual energy budget components, and subsequent melt. Finds net radiation balance dominant factor until late March and sensible heat flux increasingly dominant thereafter as warm air masses begin to traverse region and temperature and humidity increase.
