Abstract
Ablation characteristics of a summer alpine snow field in the Klondike Lake area, Medicine Bow Mountains, Wyoming, were investigated and it was found that the mean summer ablation rate was 6.00 plus or minus 0.5 cm/day. The total change in volume of water in the snow field was determined using two techniques, mean surface ablation and area-elevation relationship based on topographic survey. Physical characteristics of the subsurface snow, such as snow density, and free water content were also evaluated. (Author)
