Dataset specification

  • Title: GeoBasis Disko - Hydrology - RE-2-Multisensor
  • Description: Automatic monitoring of river water properties in Røde Elv (RE) was carried out at this position in 2014. A multisensor (YSI 6820 V2-2) was deployed in the river early in the runoff season and removed late in the runoff season. Data were logged every 10 minutes. The station was running West Greenland Standard Time (UTC-3). A large flood damaged the set-up in August 2014 and therefore several parameters ends in August. It also turned out that the position was not suitable as the main stream was located at the opposite river bank during periods with low water level. To see data from the present position see: Multisensor Hydrology:Hydrology GeoBasis Disko:The GeoBasis monitoring programme focuses on selected abiotic characteristics in order to describe the state of Greenlandic terrestrial environments and their potential feedback effects in a changing climate. Monitored plot data is up-scaled to a landscape level and is used to improve ecosystem models to be able to quantify these feedback mechanisms. The GeoBasis programme provides an active response to recommendations in international assessments such as ACIA and SWIPA; and is continuously being adapted based on AMAP and other international founded recommendations. Furthermore, the GeoBasis programme is directly involved in several international networks and research projects (e.g. the Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) programme, the Nordic Centre of Excellence DEFROST, the Danish Centre of Excellence CENPERM, the EU-projects PAGE21 and INTERACT, and the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University). The GeoBasis programme is divided into a number of sub-groups, including:
