Monitoring of discharge and sediment transport at the outlet of Watson River, Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

Updated 2012-08-28

Monitoring of discharge and sediment transport at the outlet of Watson River, Kangerlussuaq, Greenland Main gaps: Very few stations measure runoff from GrIS (Greenland Ice Sheet). Only four stations monitor sediment transport from the entire Greenland (pt. 4 stations), this station is the only station that monitor transport to the sea from GrIS. When the project ends (2010) only three stations are left and transport from GrIS is again unknown.
