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. 

The GEM Programme put around 75 scientists in the field annually to collect data on ecosystem and climate change in Greenland. The data base currently covers data from monitoring programmes from Zackenberg (1995-), Kobbefjord at Nuuk (2007-) and Disko (2017-). The well over 1000 parameters are freely available via the GEM Database and used by GEM participants and external scientists to produce scientific papers, scientific assessments, advisory reports, etc.

Zackenberg Research Station celebrates its 20th anniversary

Twenty years of Arctic research puts Denmark on the world map. In 1995, visionary researchers established the Zackenberg Research Station in North-East Greenland to monitor climate change in the area. Today – twenty years later – the climate change is precisely described in a unique data set.

Koblingen mellem indlandsis, fjord og CO2-optag afdækkes i Godthåbsfjord (in Danish only)

Processerne omkring afsmeltningen af Grønlands indlandsis har mistet lidt mere af deres mystik. Forskere ved Grønlands Naturinstitut har i samarbejde med internationale forskere tilføjet ny viden om meteorologi, kemi, biologi og fysik i samspillet mellem Grønlands indlandsis og Godthåbsfjord.
