Science / project plan

Within this project we will map and characterise the coastal zone in NE Greenland based on remote sensing. We will derive intertidal zones, shallow water bathymetry and classification of coastal types based on both commercial VHR imagery and publically available satellite imagery. Validation will be carried out by in situ measurements in the shallow waters of Vega Sund. Besides Asiaq, the  Greenland Institute for Natural Resources and DHI Gras A/S are project members.
