Despite forecasts that global warming will increase Antarctic snowfall, there is some evidence that exactly the opposite is true. Analysis of the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) data indicates a decrease in the accumulation on the Antarctic ice sheet over the last 29 years. The GPCP satellite remote sensing data, spanning the years 1979 to 2007, exhibits 6-year cycles in precipitation rate. Precipitation in these cycles from 1982 to 2005 has gradually decreased by 15%. This reduction is statistically significant.
