Results of pollen analysis of a large firn sample from Dye 3, southern Greenland, are reported. The sample was divided into three sections: all dominated by pine, birch, and ragweed pollen. Pollen concentration for the entire sample is 15 pollen grains per litre and the annual pollen deposition rate has been estimated at approximately 0.73 grains cm−2 year−1 (7300 grains m−2 a−1). Although these values are slightly lower than expected, considering the relatively southern latitude of the site, they are within the range of values obtained from other Arctic ice caps.
