An attempt is made to develop a method for producing a climatology of ice accretion. It is found that the available data are not sufficient to produce such a climatology. A method is presented by which a climatology of occurrences of freezing precipitation could be derived, principally from standard radiosonde information. The principal statistical tool employed is multiple discriminant analysis. Were adequate quantitative data on ice accretion to become available at even a limited number of locations the method could be extended to provide the desired climatology. Author
