Science / project plan

The marine area off Tasiilaq and Sermilik Icefjord in East Greenland is a highly productive area. It is also exposed to rapid changes due to climatic changes and year-to-year variations in temperature. We investigate the role of marine mammals as top-predators in the marine ecosystem using passive acoustics and telemetry.
