A Century of High and Low Snowfall Extremes in the United States

February 2010
CO2 Science;2/24/2010, Vol. 13 Issue 8, p4
The article presents a study, which examined the temporal variability in the occurrence of the most extreme snowfall years in the U.S. Using a set of 440 long-term snowfall records. The researchers revealed that there was no statistically significant trend in the occurrence of either high or low snowfall years in the country within the 107-year period. The authors pointed out that results contradicted claims that global warming leads to more extreme weather.
