AbstractObservations were made on the energy balance at the surface of a melting snow cover for a two-week period in the spring of 1959 at Ottawa, Canada. The net radiation was found to contribute over this period 2305 cal/cm3, and convection 785 cal/cm2. Of this heat, 2290 cal/cm2 were used for evaporation and 800 cal/cm3 formelting. The water equivalent of the snow cover lost was 13.4 cm and of this, 3.4 cm is estimated to have evaporated. The observations are discussed in relation to climatic factors and similar studies carried out in other regions.
