Dataset specification

  • Title: GeoBasis Zackenberg - Meteorology - M5_60min
  • Description: "M5 is located in a wet fen area called 'Rylekæret', just 20 meters North of the Automatic Chamber site. The station was installed in 2009. The 60 min file only runs until July 2010, but covers periods where there is no data from the 10 min file. Soil temperature is measured in 2, 20, 30, 40 and 50 cm, using Campbell scientific T107 thermocouples. Soil temperature is also measured in 2, 8, 12 and 16 cm depth, using East 30 Sensors, thermal conductivity sensors. Every 12th hour these conductivity sensors emit a heat pulse, hence measurements from 01:00 and 13:00 have been removed as these are affected by the heat pulse. " Meteorology:Meteorology GeoBasis Zackenberg: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:
