We consider the parabolic Anderson model (PAM) in ℝ ² with a Gaussian (space) white-noise potential. We prove that the almost-sure large-time asymptotic behaviour of the total mass at time t is given asymptotically by Χ t log t, with the deterministic constant Χ identified in terms of a variational formula. In earlier work of one of the authors this constant was used to describe the asymptotic behaviour principal Dirichlet of the eigenvalue the Anderson operator on the t by t box around zero asymptotically by Χ log t.
