The meltwater runoff of the Greenland Ice Sheet has doubled over the last two decades strongly affecting the fjords and coastal shelves around Greenland. Through multidisciplinary research, we aim to understand how ocean-glacier interaction drives the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet and what the impact of melting glaciers is on the physical oceanography and ecosystems. The long-term research program involves seasonal hydrographic and biogeochemical fieldwork in SW Greenland (Godthåbsfjord and Ameralik) and research cruises in Greenland fjords during the summer months.
