Record #96897:

The significance of the date of snow disappearance on the Arctic tundra as a possible indicator of climatic change / J.L. Foster.

Title: The significance of the date of snow disappearance on the Arctic tundra as a possible indicator of climatic change / J.L. Foster.
Author(s): Foster, J. L.
Date: 1989.
In: Arctic and Alpine Research. (1989.), Vol. 21(1) (1989)
Abstract: Historic data on date when snow cover disappears in spring are presented and analyzed for 12 stations between 68 and 74°N. Results show that, for much of area, date of snow disappearance has been occurring earlier in spring since late 1960s, and for Barrow, AK, since 1950. Not yet clear whether this is due to anthropogenic influences or to change in atmospheric circulation, although former seems more likely.
