Extratropical cyclones and precipitation within the Canadian archipelago during the cold season / Matthew R. Intihar, Ronald E. Stewart.

Title: Extratropical cyclones and precipitation within the Canadian archipelago during the cold season / Matthew R. Intihar, Ronald E. Stewart.
Author(s): Intihar, Matthew R.
Stewart, Ronald E.
Date: 2005.
In: Arctic. (2005.), Vol. 58(2) (2005)
Abstract: Study examined extratropical cyclones within Canadian Archipelago, a subregion of the Arctic, over the period 1948-97. Using data from the Historical Canadian Climate Data (HCCD), the U.S. National Climate Center (UNCC), and the European Meteorological Bulletin (EMB), assessed relationship between extratropical cyclones and cold-season snowfall (October-April) for 10 events at each of 11 surface stations. Events were brief (72 hrs or less), but resulted in precipitation totals that exceeded average monthly amount. At each station, within 10 most extreme precipitation months of 50-year period, single events often accounted for approximately one-third of total snowfall during month. In many cases, cyclone dissipation occurred within 24 hrs of event's conclusion. Precipitation analyses in study were considerably affected by snowfall undercatchment.Identification of extreme events and related storm tracks appeared to be relatively unaffected by lack of corrected precipitation data.
