Dataset landingpage: BioBasis Nuuk - Vegetation - NDVI in carbon-flux plots

Dataset specification

  • Title: BioBasis Nuuk - Vegetation - NDVI in carbon-flux plots
  • Description: The progression in the vegetation greenness (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index; NDVI) is followed weekly. NDVI is measured with a handheld SpectroSense 2+ system. For further details, please refer to the newest BioBasis manual available at the website. Vegetation:Vegetation BioBasis Nuuk:The BioBasis programme monitors the dynamics of organisms and biological processes in the terrestrial and limnic ecosystems at Zackenberg and Nuuk. The BioBasis programme plays a central role in the development and implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme (CBMP) http://www.caff.is/monitoring across the Arctic.
