European snow cover and its influence on spring and summer temperatures

Auteur :
ÚNA NÍ CHAOIMH,

Description :
European surface temperatures in late Spring and early Summer were examined in relation to European snow cover using satellite-derived monthly snow-cover data and station temperatures anomalies. Maximum annual snow extent and March snow extent were correlated with temperature anomalies from April to July. Maximum annual snow-cover extent, which occurred in January or February, was significantly negatively correlated with temperature in the Spring and early Summer. Three distinct regions emerged as being correlated with variation in maximum annual snow cover. These were Central Europe, Western Europe and Eastern Europe in April, May and July respectively.
