About the program
From high arctic to subarctic seas, and from deep ocean basins to complex fjord systems, the highly diverse marine ecosystems surrounding Greenland have an inestimable societal and economic value. These ecosystems are however rapidly changing under the numerous effects of climate change. Our work focuses on a variety of topics, including physical oceanography, biodiversity, paleoecology and the ecology of key groups such as plankton, fish and whales. Our approaches range from species-centred studies to regional studies focusing on multiple trophic levels; our methodologies range from metagenomics to fisheries acoustics. Our overarching goal is to better understand Greenland’s marine ecosystems and their responses to climate change.
