Daily snow depth records at 60 primary climatic stations over the Tibetan Plateau for the period 1957-1992 are used as a basis for point and areal time series development. A statistical model consisting of a trend plus serially correlated noise is fitted to the data to test for trend in time series of snow cover. The results suggest that higher precipitation may be a characteristic of warmer climates in polar regions. Thus, snow cover variation over the Tibetan plateau which is so-called Third Pole of the Earth assumes particular importance for full understanding of the cryosphere response to climate change
