Abstract: During the summer 1962, a five-man party from the Institute of Polar Studies, The Ohio State University, made a reconnaissance study of the Sukkertoppen Ice Cap, in southwest Greenland and the adjacent land area to the east. The purpose of the reconnaissance was to evaluate the research potential of this area in terms of an extended and interdisciplinary investigation of a temperate ice cap and its environs. A report on the reconnaissance (Institute of Polar Studies Report No. 4) discussed meteorology, glaciology, geology and vegetation studies, and recommended continued work in the area. Thus, in the summer 1963 another Institute team consisting of nine men returned to study the land area marginal to the east-west trending Lake Tasersiaq, which lies between the main Greenland Ice Sheet on the east and the isolated Sukkertoppen Ice Cap on the west. Individual studies including climatology, slope movement and soil morphology, glacial geology, and limnology, all at the western end of the Tasersiaq area, and bedrock geology at the eastern end. A report was submitted to the funding agencies. Studies are continuing during the summer 1964. The meteorological data obtained during the summer 1963 have now been reduced and analyzed and the results comprise this report. Dr Loewe discusses the general meteorological framework. Dr. Kosbia discusses wind in great detail, and compares data from the Tasersiaq area to other long-established meteorological stations in nearby areas.
