Abstract: Studies of snow stratigraphy indicate that the mass accumulation between Victoria Land Plateau (78° 02' S, 154° 22' E) and the South Pole is approximately 4.5 g.cm-2yr-1 (±20%), which is one-half the amount determined previously for the same region. The rate of mass accumulation decreases from south to north, a trend opposite to that reported in the literature. This can be explained in terms of the known pattern of atmospheric circulation and topography.
