Abstract

This paper discusses multiple scales of ice accumulation and forest disturbance resulting from the 1994 storms in southwestern Virginia. The AA. first examine synoptic-scale meteorology of the two 1994 storms. Second, they discuss topographic variations in forest damage. Third, they quantify the level of canopy disturbance in several damage stands. Finally, they compare patterns of damage associated with the 1994 events to those produced by several other ice storms
