Walsh, K. J.
Special ReportPurpose: Construction and maintenance of compacted snow roads on the Greenland Ice Cap may be considerably hindered by blowing snow. This study was undertaken to determine the number of days and the number of hours each month when blowing snow occurred at sites 1 and2 on the Greenland Ice Cap. The information obtained from this study may be used in determining the amount of time available for operational programs and research work on the Ice Cap.
