"Greenland" may have received its name because it was one of the few places that far north that had substantial vegetation on its southern coast, especially during a warmer period from 800 to 1300 AD. The large permanent ice cap can partially thaw on its surface, and there are many glaciers around i…ts periphery (the source of icebergs). On the ocean coasts, the climate varies substantially from summer to winter.. Coastal regions on the northern half of Greenland experience very cold winter temperatures, but slightly warmer than the continental Arctic, with average January temperatures of â30 Â°C to â25 Â°C (â22 Â°F to â13 Â°F). Summer temperatures average between â12 Â°C and 0 Â°C (10 Â°F and 32 Â°F). In the south , temperatures have a warmer average, between â20 Â°C to 0Â°C in the winter. Average temperatures can exceed 10Â°C in the summer.. Little precipitation occurs in the northernmost area around Peary Land, in contrast to the interior and southern coast. The prevalence of Atlantic cyclones brings from 400 to 1200 mm (16 to 47 inches) of annual precipitation along the southern coast. In some areas, the high coastal mountains will generate extreme amounts, up to 2200 mm (87 inches) yearly. ( Full Answer )
