Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: The large treeless openings or "parks" in the western yellow pine forests of the southwest, which form a well known characteristic, afford an excellent opportunity for a comparative study of the effect of a forest canopy upon local snow conditions. During the late winter and spring of 1909, the writer had an exceptionally favorable opportunity for observing the progress of snowfall and subsequent melting in a virgin stand of western yellow pine near the base of the San Francisco peaks on the Coconino National Forest in northern Arizona.
