    Description

    A multivariate analysis of climate was used to delineate 10 significantly different groups of climatic stations along the southern coast of Alaska based on latitude, longitude, seasonal temperatures and precipitation, frost-free periods, and total number of growing degree days. The climatic stations were too few to delineate this rugged, mountainous region into distinct climatic zones.
