Abstract: [1] Meteorological models were used to retrieve annual accumulation, runoff, and surface mass balance on a 5 km  5 km grid for the Greenland ice sheet for . We present the first such history that provides insight into seasonal and interannual variability, which should prove useful for those studying the ice sheet. Derived runoff was validated by means of a control model run and independent in situ data. Modeled accumulation has already been validated using shallow ice core data. Surface mass balance (SMB) re…
