Science / project plan

We will travel by chartered boat (Arctic Boat Charter, 37 ft Targa) to 9 field locations along the southwest coast from Narsaq to Maniitsoq over the period of September 5 -September 14. 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
