Abstract The fully distributed hydrology land‐surface scheme WATCLASS is used to simulate spring snowmelt runoff in a small Arctic basin, Trail Valley Creek, dominated by open tundra and shrub tundra vegetation. The model calculates snowmelt rates from a full surface energy balance, and a...
Abstract Daily maximum and minimum temperature data from 54 stations in Alaska and northern Canada are used to evaluate temporal changes in the variance and autocorrelation of the daily anomalies from 1950–2000. To the extent that the variance and autocorrelation capture variability and anomaly...
Abstract A distinct change in the ocean circulation of the Gulf of Alaska after the 1976–77 climate shift is studied in an eddy‐permitting primitive equation model forced by observed wind stresses from 1951–99. When the Aleutian Low strengthens after 1976–77, strong changes occur in the mean...
Abstract State‐space models were used to derive non‐parametric sea surface temperature (SST) trends from 26 locations in and around the Gulf of Alaska for the period 1950–97. The SST trends reflect important large‐scale climate impacts associated with El Niño events and regime shifts, but also...
Abstract This study presents a semi‐analytic non‐iterative solution for the Monin‐Obukhov similarity equations under unstable surface conditions. The solution is represented in terms of the non‐dimensional Monin‐Obukhov stability parameter z/L. This parameter is given as a function of the bulk...
Abstract The wind climate of the mountainous terrain in the southern Yukon is simulated using the Wind Energy Simulation Toolkit (WEST) developed by the Recherche en Prévision Numérique (RPN) group of Environment Canada and is compared to measurements in the field. WEST combines two models that...
