Evaluation of existing measurements in 2015 and 2016; new measurements of Short lived greenhouse forcers in 2017 and 2018 (EVAM-SLCF) and 2017-2019

Research

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

Event type: 
Research
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.
