Prediction of seasonal snow accumulation in cold climate forests

  title={Prediction of seasonal snow accumulation in cold climate forests},
  author={John W. Pomeroy and D. M. Gray and N. R. Hedstrom and J. Richard Janowicz},
Accumulation of snow under forest canopies is known to decline with increasing canopy density and leaf area because of snow interception and sublimation in the canopy. Seasonal snow accumulation measurements, collected over a decade from various forest stands in western Canada, were used to test and develop methods to relate forest snow accumulation to stand properties and observations of either small-clearing seasonal snow accumulation or seasonal snowfall. At sub-stand scales, the variability… CONTINUE READING
