DescriptionA 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.
