Abstract : The paper was designed to provide a climatological guide to Alaskan weather. As such, it defines five climatic regions within Alaska and describes the conditions which combine to produce the observed regional climates. It is not intended to be a forecasting manual or a detailed analysis of weather factors or terrain peculiarities affecting specific locations. Enough information is included, however, for squadron or detachment personnel to prepare complete seasonal climatological briefings on any general area within Alaska. (Author)
