Abstract:

This data report contains climatological measurements for the winters of 1980-81 and 1981-82 made at three sites in New Hampshire situated at elevations of 155 m, 870 m and 1910 m above sea level. Parameters measured included wind speed and direction, precipitation, temperature, humidity, and duration of icing events. Comparison of the data provides the opportunity to examine the influence of elevation on atmospheric icing occurrence and intensity. In New Hampshire, icing appears to occur only at elevations above about 900 m. Author
