The Arctic has heated twice as much as the rest of the world with large consequences for example for the wildlife, the pollutants and the cryosphere and with possible large positive feedback effects on climate. Although the knowledge about the Arctic has increased over the last years, Arctic is still one of the regions of which we know least. This is especially true for the high Arctic. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of infrastructure.

GeoBasis-Zackenberg 2018

The Arctic is warming at an amplified rate compared with the global average. This has and will continue to have large implications for Arctic ecosystems and their functioning. There is thus an urgent need to monitor and understand the consequences of a changing climate for Arctic ecosystems and related feedback effects on the climate system. The GeoBasis programme is a part of the integrated, cross-disciplinary Greenland Environmental Monitoring (GEM) programme, and has been monitoring the terrestrial, abiotic environments in Green-land since 1995.

Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS)

Start/end date:

Event type: 
Research

The infrastructure ICOS RI, is a European infrastructure consisting of measurement sites where concentrations of atmospheric carbon climate gases and/or ecosystem fluxes are measured. ICOS/DK is a network of measurement sites in Denmark and Greenland, which will contribute to the European ICOS RI.

Marin Basis Zackenberg

Start/end date:

Marin Basis Monitoring Program is a part of the GEM program, and take place in Young Sund every year in late July until middle of August. The program follows the levels and changes in

Drivhusgas-observationer i Arktis (ObsArktis)

Start/end date: 
Mon, 2018-07-30 00:00 to Wed, 2018-08-29 00:00
Event type: 
Research

The objective of the project is to strengthen the understanding of the regional and local processes controlling the arctic climate changes. It is our intension to observe the development of CO2 in the arctic atmosphere at Zackenberg Marine Station by an artic fjord sampling and analyzing concentrations as well as the fluxes.

East Greenland coastal cruise

Start/end date:

The Greenland Ice sheet is melting at accelerating rate releasing freshwater into to the coastal sea around Greenland. The interaction between Ice Sheet and ocean is complex and is modified by local fjord conditions such as sill depth, tidal amplitude, sea ice conditions, bathymetry and coastal water characteristics. The ocean may be an important heat source that contributes to glacial melting.
