We will travel by chartered boat (Arctic Boat Charter, 37 ft Targa) to 5 field locations within a few hours of Ivittuut (& Arsuk), Paamiut, Fiskenæsset, Nuuk and Maniitsoq, respectively, over the period of June 7-June 12. Locations are outlets of meltwater rivers where they enter into the fjord (or near this), which we will sample for suspended sediment and water quality.
