Abstract : To provide generalized weather patterns for logistics and construction in the Arctic, five stations-Barrow, Resolute, Thule, Eureka, and Alert - were analyzed for temperature, wind, windchill, and sunlight-darkness. Although this was a small representation of northernhemisphere stations, as well as only a portion of the factors affecting logistics and construction, some generalizations could be made as to trends in the weather with latitude and with type of location. Further studies should be conducted, investigating other stations and more factors, in order to develop valid generalized weather patterns. (Author)
