Abstract : The Na+, K+, Ca2+, Mg2+ and Fe3+ concentrations in the 1964 to 1969 annual snow accumulations at Dye Sites 2 and 3 on the Greenland Ice Cap were measured. Although the concentrations of most of these cations showed significant variations on an annual and seasonal basis, no clear-cut trend or relationship between these parameters and the concentrations was observed.
