This paper attempts to determine the relationships between multi-annual variability of air temperature, precipitation and wind velocity, and changes in the front limits of the perennial firn-ice forms (glacierets) developing under different topographic conditions. Problems with the palaeoclimatic interpretation of their internal structure are also discussed. The results attest to the fact that fluctuations in firn-ice patches in the Tatras are probably most connected with the weather regimes in winter seasons. Similar changes of individual forms depend on their similarity in terms of type of snow accumulation and the altitude at which they are located
