AbstractDuring February and March of 1956, observations were carrried out on the snow cover at the Montreal Road Laboratories of the National Research Council. The purpose of these observations was to gain an understanding of some of the changes that occur in a shallow snow cover subjected to a temperate climate and on what meteorological factors these changes depend. The observations were made in an area immediately adjacent to a Stevenson screen installation in which air temperature and humidity were recorded and to a thermocouple installation at which the snow and air temperatures at known levels up to 36 inches above the ground surface were recorded.
