Title: Los Alamos climatology summary including latest normals from 1961--1990

Abstract

This report contains a summary of Los Alamos climate and analyses of basic weather variables from late 1910 through 1991. The first few sections offer a description of the local geography and large-scale weather patterns that affect Los Alamos. Temperature and precipitation analyses are presented in the next few sections. Updated 30-year temperature and precipitation normals ending in 1990 are shown for Los Alamos and White Rock. Normal snowfall is also shown for Los Alamos. Extremes of temperature, precipitation, and snowfall and averages of weather variables are also given. A section then discusses the changes of the latest 30-year normals. Another section describes the winds in Los Alamos. Brief descriptions of, humidity, sunshine, atmospheric pressure, and pollutant dispersal appear in the following sections. The report ends with brief descriptions of other weather phenomena that occur in Los Alamos. Appendices include locations of weather stations, normal heating and cooling degree-days, growing-season data, and English/metric unit conversions.

  • This document is a compilation of informal reports, letters, and memorandums regarding geologic and hydrologic studies and investigations such as foundation investigations for structures, drilling or coring for environmental studies, development of water supply, or construction of test or observation wells for monitoring. Also included are replies requested for specific environmental, engineering, geologic, and hydrologic problems. The purpose of this document is to preserve and make the original data available to the environmental studies that are now in progress at Los Alamos and provide a reference for and supplement the LAMS report ``Records of Observation Wells, Test Holes, Test Wells,more » Supply Wells, Springs, and Surface water stations at Los Alamos: with Reference to the Geology and Hydrology,`` which is in preparation. The informal reports and memorandums are listed chronologically from December 1961 to January 1990. Item 208 is a descriptive history of the US Geological Survey`s activities at Los Alamos from 1946 through 1972. The history includes a list of published and unpublished reports that cover geology, hydrology, water supply, waste disposal, and environmental monitoring in the Los Alamos area.« less

  • Activities during the period 15 October 1960 to 15 January 1961 are summarized. Included is the complete and revised circuit for the pilot test models under construction. This design was considered necessary when it was determined that material procurement lead-times for particular component parts of the previously advanced design would result in long delays in delivery of the pilot test models. The performance characteristics of the latest design are superior in many respects to the previous one. Supporting data for the breadboard instrument is included on battery life, temperature data on d-c and pulsed ranges, instrument accuracy to Co/sup 60/,more » circuit theory, energy dependence, life test on scale changing meter, and scale form factors.
