In the News: Ice Boom Doesn’t Lengthen Winter

Posted: April 9, 2018

No less an authority than Western New York’s legendary meteorologist Don Paul cites Steve Vermette, professor of geography and planning, regarding the ice boom’s effect on this year’s long-lasting winter.

Paul wrote in the Buffalo News, “Evidence: nada.”

The 2005 study, by Vermette and then-graduate student Mark LaRussa, concluded: “There is no evidence to support perceptions that the ice boom has retarded ice dissipation or has caused a cooling of air temperatures in Buffalo during the spring months.”
