Iceberg project

Iceberg project

Start/end date: 
Sunday, December 20, 2015 - 11:15
Event type: 

Icebergs play an important role in heat budget and local upwelling (and in this way on nutrient dynamics) of the fjord system. Fjord winds, circulation and tides play a role in movement and melting of icebergs in the fjord system. Work will include investigations of heat sources for melt from atmosphere and ocean, iceberg melt and transport.
