Record #172341:

Mount Everest snow plume: a case study / G.W.K. Moore.

Title: Mount Everest snow plume: a case study / G.W.K. Moore.
Author(s): Moore, G. W. K.
Date: 2004.
In: Geophysical Research Letters. (2004.), Vol. 31(22) (2004)
Abstract: Investigates 15 to 20 km long plume of snow blowing from summit of Mount Everest observed from International Space Station (ISS) in January 2004. Estimates plume depth 500-1000 m. Uses variety of meteorological datasets, such as TRMM Real-Time Multi-Satellite Precipitation Analysis and MODIS Terra Snow Cover dataset, to show plume was combination of high winds associated with East Asian Jet Stream and heavy snowfall over Himalaya during preceding week. Discusses evidence that phenomenon was blown snow plume rather than banner cloud and constructs simple model consistent with observations made from ISS.
