Science / project plan

Light dynamics plays an essential role in primary production. Due to input of silty meltwater, light regime is highly dynamics in Greenland coasts. What is the daily, tidal, seasonal variation in light dynamics? By transects studies in the fjord in combination with various moorings of PAR sensor, variability in light quantity and quality will be assessed in Godthåbsfjord.
