Abstract

Three versions of a Climate Departure Index (CDI) are presented for studying how normal or unusual a particular year on event is compared to the long terme average for region. Comparison of a simple CDI, absolute value CDI and least-squares CDI are made through the use of hypothetical examples and two case studies involving seasonal snowfall variations in northern New England and last spring-freeze date variations in the southeastern United States - The preferred version is the least-squares CDI
