Science / project plan

We have over the last 25 years made long-term environmental measurements in East Greenland, mostly in the Daneborg/Zackenberg area. Time is ready to scale up our measurements to the regional scale eventually to all of Greenland. Through a close collaboration between different science disciplines (atmosphere, cryosphere, terrestrial, limnic and marine environmental scientists) and during the last years together with engineering, the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University have ambition to use new technology for such an upscaling. In 2021, we will deploy test units for autonomous measurements of climate, environmental and living conditions for animals and plants along the climate gradients that exists from the Greenland ice sheet to the open ocean in the Young Sund-Tyrolerfjord system (and the catchment area) in NE Greenland. Data will be transferred in near real-time.
