Ocean-Atmosphere coupling

Ocean-Atmosphere coupling

In an interdisciplinary project funded by the Greenlandic Research Council we combine atmospheric and marine observations in order to setup an integrated study in the inner part of Godthåbsfjord (Kangersuneq), close to the Greenland Ice Sheet. The main objectives of the project carried out by Asiaq and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources are to (I) increase our understanding on the local climatology in the fjord system, (II) study the coupling between atmospheric processes and the marine environment and (III) construct a heat budget for the fjord.
