Permafrost research in NE-Greenland
Ten studens one goal
by Stefanie Härtel, PhD fellow
This movie shows the fieldwork of ten young permafrost researchers from four Nordic Universities who set out to remote Zackenberg valley at 74 ° N in NE-Greenland. The students participate in a PhD course entitled AG 833 "High-Arctic Permafrost landscape dynamics in Svalbard and NE-Greenland". Goal of this course is to better understand the landscape history and to link present and future periglacial processes with carbon and nitrogen dynamics at two high-Arctic sites: Zackenberg valley in NE-Greenland and Svalbard. AG 833 is organised by the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), Norway, and the Center for Permafrost (CENPERM) at the University of Copenhagen, financially supported by Perma-Nordnet of NORDEN, a project as part of the "Nordic Ministerial Council" Arctic collaboration program in Norway.
