Dataset specification

  • Title: GeoBasis Zackenberg - Meteorology - M4_30min
  • Description: "M4 is located on a well drained Cassiope heath, about 150 meters north of the 'Climate station' (operated by ClimateBasis). In 2009 NDVI sensors were installed and data recorded every 30 min. In 2014 temperature probes were installed in different depths in the soil. This data is also recorded every 30 min. Thus, the 30 min file contains data from 2009 to present. Data was recorded in a CR10x Campbel scientifix data logger until June 2014, where the data logger was changed to a CR1000. " 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:
