Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Atmospheric circulation and weather are studied across Greenland at Holsteinborg, Sondre, Stromfield, Dye 1, Dye 3 and Angmagssalik during two weeks in summer 1978. Five barometric patterns are described: high pressure cell on the whole of Greenland, on the East, on the South, barometric col and depression. Seven frontal waves affect the southern hall of Greenland during these two weeks. Fronts often cross the ice-cap-Frontal waves centers move along either coast with out climbing the ice-cap. Cloudiness increases when a humid air mass goes up the ice-cap. A fohn effect may happen locally when the same air mass goes down towards the coast.
