The rise in global temperature in recent years has led to a large increase in the melting of the Greenland ..
We welcome Diana Krawczyk to the Greenland Climate Research Centre at the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources. Diana is originally from Poland, but have lived many years in Greenland. Diana´s research has always focused on the Greenland region and during her PhD and Post-doc, she investigated past marine ecology and oceanographic conditions on millennial time scale based on fossil diatom records preserved in marine sediments. Since 2016, Diana has been developing benthic habitat mapping projects with two key tasks: instrumentation of the research vessel ‘Sanna’ and creating a framework and expertise for new, high-resolution seafloor modelling and mapping in Greenland. This work has resulted in acquiring new technology in Nuuk, developing a new ‘best practice’
protocol and habitat classification for seafloor mapping in Greenland
Her ongoing focus will be oriented towards building an umbrella program ‘#Modelling #Greenland #Seafloor’ which would be an online 3D database with modelled Greenland seafloor terrain and associated information on habitats and paleorecords.
The position is shared position between the Greenland Climate Research Centre at the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland. Diana will be a key person in the joined cooperation between GCRC and GEUS in the efforts of promoting habitat mapping on the Greenlandic shelf and to build new research projects and programs.
