Science / project plan

The MarineBasis Zackenberg programme collects physical, chemical and biological data from the Greenland coastal zone. Work is focused in a fjord system influenced by glaciers connected to the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The MarineBasis programme collects physical, chemical and biological data from the Greenland coastal zone. Work is focused in two fjord systems (Godthåbsfjord and Young Sund) 

The programme delivers base-line data that enables identification of long-term trends in key parameters such as sea ice coverage, ocean temperature, salinity and pH, nutrient dynamics, primary production and marine biodiversity.
