Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring

Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring (GEM) is an integrated monitoring and long-term research programme on ecosystems and climate change effects and feedbacks in the Arctic. Since 1995 the programme has established a coherent and integrated understanding of the functioning of ecosystems in a highly variable climate, which is based upon a comprehensive, long-term inter-disciplinary data collection carried out by Danish and Greenlandic monitoring and research institutions. 

All data from Arctic terrestrial, limnic and marine ecosystems have been collected under Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring since 1995. The data base currently covers data from monitoring programmes from Zackenberg (1995-) and Kobbefjord at Nuuk (2007-) and can be accessed free of charge at the GEM database (use link below).

Muskox boost Arctic-mire carbon uptake

Animals graze around half the land on Earth, affecting the plants that grow there, the soil, and the carbon sink. Now, a team from Lund University, Sweden, and Aarhus University in Denmark has found that excluding muskox (Ovibos moschatus) from mires in Greenland reduces their carbon uptake but increases their methane emissions.
