Abstract: With rapid progress of motorization, automobile transportation has come into wide use in snowy regions in Japan. But such automobile transportation sometimes suffers from the snow disaster of blowing snow especially in the northern part of Japan. To reach a solution of this snow problem, the NIED undertook a joint study of blowing snow at the Tsugaru Plain and the possibility of areal prediction of blowing snow was made clear (Higashiura et al., 1993). On the basis of this result, a new project of an areal warning system of blowing snow was planned.
