Geolocation is 64.660420276695, -50.174560546875
Recently we installed a new weather station and a time-lapse camera in the inner part of Godthåbsfjord (in collaboration with Asiaq). In vicinity of the weather station a CTD equipped with additional sensors for oxygen, chlorophyll, turbidity, light and pH will be deployed (collaboration with NIOZ). These continuous mooring measurements will allow estimate of the role of fjord winds and glacial melt on productivity. Using the continuous oxygen data allows, for the first time, to have a continuous estimate of productivity close to a tidewater outlet. With the time-lapse camera the presence of icebergs can be quantified.
