Three ice cores distributed across Dasuopu (DSP) glacier in the Himalaya were recovered. the annual net accumulation (An) record reconstructed from one of the cores reflects major precipitation variability for the central Himalaya. This record agrees well with precipitation records from Nepal and northeast India, while it does not compare well with the all-India precipitation record. Singular spectrum analysis applied to the 200 year long Dasuopu accumulation (DSP An) record indicates significant variability on interannual and inter-decadal time-scales. the record shows that the early 18th century was dry, wet conditions prevailed during the period 1820–1930, and after 1930 An decreased to its present value. Distinct secular trends were not found in the record. for the period 1950– 94, the variability of DSP An is found to correlate significantly with the thermal contrast between the Tibetan Plateau and the Indian Ocean surface temperature. Additionally, a significant relationship between DSP An and solar activity is detected.
