Water stable isotopes in Greenland ice core data provide key paleoclimatic information, and have been compared with precipitation isotopic composition simulated by isotopically enabled atmospheric models. However, postdepositional processes linked with snow metamorphism remain poorly documented. For this purpose, monitoring of the isotopic composition ( δ18O, δD) of near-surface water vapor, precipitation and samples of the top (0.5 cm) snow surface has been conducted during two summers (2011… CONTINUE READING
