Science / project plan

Fieldwork in connection with multi year  for drinking water from meltwater rivers.

In 2020 two field expeditions (with 3 GEUS personnel each) take place to field locations along the southwest coast from Nuuk to Maniitsoq. 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. 
Travel by chartered boat (Arctic Boat Charter, 37 ft Targa).
