An outline that summarizes the observations of the snowmelt quantities and meteorological parameters by which the several processes of heat transfer were evaluated, are presented. the results of the study are expressed in the form of melt coefficients which sere verified by a comparison of actual snowmelt with that computed by these coefficients. Independent statistical analysis were also made. the data tabulations list the snowmelt and heat transfer parameters for each day of the period study. The snowmelt quantities were measured by a lysimeter shown in two photos. Construction drawing s are shown and tabulation of data collected are also included.
