Practical Mountain Weather was a great free online resource for learning about weather phenomenon I found online a few years ago and bookmarked.  Unfortunately, the link to the source material everyone on the internet references (http://pafc.arh.noaa.gov/classroom/practical_mountain.php) has died.  Does anyone have a saved pdf version of this great article they could share?  If not, are there any other recommendations for learning about mountain weather forecasting?

Thanks, 

Stephen

If only we could remember the name of the pdf. Might be able to find it that way via pdf searches.

Also, you can have it used for a mere $935.22 lol:

Dr. Papineau and the original sources are credited in SourceData.txt, I'm sure he would not mind having this information re-uploaded.

Gerrit,

Thanks for downloading Papineau's book on the internet archive. I tried finding the book on there before posting but didn't have any luck. I ended up buying a digital copy of Mountain Weather by Jeff Renner to read while I am traveling in Mexico to attempt a couple of their volcanos. Renner's book doesnt provide as many illustrations as Papineau's which i found more helpful. 

Thanks again for sharing,

Steve
