This year marks the tenth anniversary of the development of the revised Spatial Synoptic Classification, the “SSC”, by Scott Sheridan. This daily weather-type classification scheme has become one of the key analytical tools implemented in a diverse range of climatological investigations, including analysis of air quality variability, human health, vegetation growth, precipitation and snowfall trends, and broader analyses of historical and future climatic variability and trends. The continued… CONTINUE READING
