Monitoring and modelling of a glaciated terrestrial ecosystem and land ocean fluxes to the adjacent fjord system (Sermilik Station, East Greenland)

Updated 2012-08-16

Monitoring and modelling of a glaciated terrestrial ecosystem and land ocean fluxes to the adjacent fjord system. Main gaps: - Basic funding for long-term monitoring - Basic funding for data and data base handling A few short gaps due to sensor failures

Methods & Procedures

Procedures and methodology used for, e.g., sampling and sample storage, sample pretreatment, extraction and analysis, including which laboratories are involved, references to methods employed, etc.

Basic climate data from coastal station and station at glacier equilibrium line: Si, Temp., RH, Wind (direction and speed) and precipitation. Basic river data: Stage, discharge, Temp., conductivity, sediment concentration and transport. Basic data on changing delta and coastal geomorphology. Basic data on glacier mass balance and glacier dynamics.
