Description: Research Report
Summary: The record of annual precipitation as obtained from stratigraphic studies on snow profiles in the interior of Northern Greenland shows a decreasing precipitation trend since 1920 with the largest decrease occurring since 1932. A residual mass curve analysis of the data indicates that, in spite of large fluctuations in the accumulated precipitation, the decreasing trend may be considered valid over a period of several years.
