Aspect-Elevation Rose

Elevation rose page

The aspect-elevation rose is the most versatile format for compiling wide-ranging daily observations and quick test pit results for casual or professional users. The corners have scales for test pits, and the center has space to note whatever patterns, tests, or events are observed by their aspect and elevation. Bruce Tremperís excellent book Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain is the best reference for using these diagrams.
