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.
The Sea-ice Environmental Research Facility (SERF) is the first experimental sea-ice facility in Canada. Located on the campus of the University of Manitoba, the main feature of the SERF facility is an outdoor seawater pool (60 feet long, 30 feet wide and 8 feet deep). It is equipped with a movable roof to control snow cover and ice growth, and various sensors and instruments to allow real-time monitoring. Along with the main pool, the facility has two oil research tubs.
The overall aim of the proposed project is to investigate how biotic interactions combined
with physiological performance underpin the sensitivity of Greenlands intertidal communit
y to changing environmental conditions. All fieldwork will be conducted in the intertidal zo
ne in Godthåbsfjorden, Greenland. The field sites will be accessed by boat from Nuuk dai
ly in June 2018. I will deploy equipment during low tide, so the boat will be avaliable for ot
her perposes in the fjord while I work.
Field Site: Godthåbsfjorden, Nuuk Greenland
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 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
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.
