Location, facilities and logistics

The Greenland Climate Research Centre is located in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. Nuuk has a population of roughly 17,000 people and is a modern city surrounded by pristine wilderness and arctic wildlife. Nuuk boasts several restaurants and cafés, a shopping center, various stores, an indoor swimming pool, several sports arenas and a cultural center with a cinema. During the summer, Nuuk is an ideal starting point for an endless variety of hiking trips through the wilds of Greenland, and during winter sports enthusiasts love to go both downhill and cross-country skiing here. We are located within the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources, with Godthåbsfjord and the University of Greenland as our closest neighbors. All of our facilities are shared with the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources. The main buildings comprise several modern laboratories, meeting rooms, an auditorium, a common canteen and offices, along with an annex of rooms and apartments for visiting researchers and students. In addition to the main buildings, a large boat house is located at the harbor, with storage facilities and the capacity to handle large equipment indoors. It is also here that the institute’s smaller vessels are serviced. The Greenland Institute of Natural Resources owns the research vessel SANNA, which is used as a platform for research and surveys in our coastal waters and fjord systems. The Greenland Climate Research Centre at the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources has its own expert team of logistics coordinators and lab technicians who facilitate daily work in the field and in the laboratories. They have crucial knowledge and expertise about traveling and working in Greenland’s remote and uninhabited areas. More details on our logistics and facilities can be found on the website of the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources
