Abstract : The climatological data collected during the summers of 1963 to 1965 in the St. Elias Mountains are analyzed along with the climatic records of the permanent weather stations in the mountain margins. In addition several particular synoptic situations (summer 1965) and the geostrophic flow over the study area (summers 1964 and 1965) are examined. From these are developed a summer transmountain climatic profile and synoptic climatology of the St. Elias Mountains region. (Author)
