Climatological study of Keweenaw Peninsula
Gerdel, Robert W.; Diamond, Marvin.
Special ReportSummary: The microclimatological survey conducted in the Keweenaw Peninsula during the 1952-53 weather season indicates that the Calumet-Hancock Airport, Ahmeek Flats, and Brockway Mountain Drive sites are all suitable for a SIPRE field station. The lower winter temperatures at the Calumet-Hancock Airport site combined with the physiographic features and availability of facilities and utilities at this site favor its selection for the Keweenaw Field Station of SIPRE. Since it is well connected with respect to the other sites, with good open, all-season highways available, advantage may be taken of the special features exhibited by the other sites if necessary to the accomplishment of special studies.
