Dataset specification

  • Title: GeoBasis Zackenberg - Meteorology - MM2
  • Description: "Micrometeorological monitoring has taken place at the site MM2 since 2009. In 2011 an energy balance mast was put up about 10 meters West of the existing eddy covariance mast. The mast is located in a wet fen area called 'Rylekæret', about 1.5 km North of the 'Climate station' (operated by ClimateBasis). Data is recorded every half hour. In September 2015 a new temperatur rod with 16 BetaTherm thermistors (measuring temperature for every 10 cm) was installed adjacent to the energy balance mast, in order to improve the snow temperature measurements, at the site." 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:
