Abstract:

The report contains a study in phenology. It has been carried out under the cooperative auspices of the Danish Government and the U.S. Armys European Research Office. In this, study was made of the correlation between the life cycles of certain Arctic plants, especially planted in S.W. Greenland, and the prevailing meteorological and climatic factors and conditions obtaining there. The objective was to determine to what extent such conditions may be ultimately predicted from observations of plant growth alone. Although the period of years spanned 1964-1970 is too short to draw firm conclusions, tentative correlations are drawn and set forth in the report.
