Lac des Trois Montagnes, La Conception, Quebec

APEL des Trois Montagnes

According to the Réseau de Surveillance Volontaire des Lacs (RSVL), of which we are a member, “the lake must be protected in order to preserve its state and its usages”. The Ministère du développement durable, de l’environnement, de la faune et des parcs (MDDEFP) recommends “the adoption of preventative measures to limit adding nutrients created by human activity”. We must therefore continue to control lake access. In accordance with a suggestion made at the 2011 and 2012 annual assemblies, the Board of the APEL is examining the possibility of entry fees.


The energy balance of the snowpack itself is dictated by several heat exchange processes. The snowpack absorbs solar shortwave radiation that is partially blocked by cloud cover and reflected by snow surface. A long-wave heat exchange takes place between the snowpack and its surrounding environment that includes overlying air mass, tree cover and clouds. Heat exchange takes place by convection between the snowpack and the overlaying air mass, and it is governed by the temperature gradient and wind speed.
