GeoBasis Nuuk - Meteorology - InteractHeath Meteorology

InteractHeath (I6Nh) is one of two automatic energy balance stations in Kobbefjord that was setup in 2011. Data from the station is found under Meteorology (air temperature, relative humidity, radiation, wind), Soil Properties (soil moisture, soil temperatures, soil heat fluxes) and Snow Properties (snow temperatures, snow depht). It is placed at the dry heath (26 m.a.s.l.) north of Badesø, where the dominating vegetation consists of salix and empetrum, close to the Eddy Heath (Flux Monitoring) and SPA (Snow Properties) stations. The meteorological dataset from the station consists of air temperature and relative humidity (Campbell, CS215) measured in radiation shield 2 m above ground, wind speed and direction (Young, 05106), short/long wave incoming/outgoing solar radiation (KippZonen, CNR4) and NDVI (Skye, SKR1800). All data is logged every 30 minutes (West Greenlandic Winter Time, CR1000). Data comments: In 2012 the station was moved 20 m closer to the stream because the vegetation Meteorology:Meteorology GeoBasis Nuuk:The GeoBasis monitoring programme focuses on selected abiotic characteristics in order to describe the state of Greenlandic terrestrial environments and their potential feedback effects in a changing climate. Monitored plot data is up-scaled to a landscape level and is used to improve ecosystem models to be able to quantify these feedback mechanisms. The GeoBasis programme provides an active response to recommendations in international assessments such as ACIA and SWIPA; and is continuously being adapted based on AMAP and other international founded recommendations. Furthermore, the GeoBasis programme is directly involved in several international networks and research projects (e.g. the Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) programme, the Nordic Centre of Excellence DEFROST, the Danish Centre of Excellence CENPERM, the EU-projects PAGE21 and INTERACT, and the Arctic Research Centre at Aarhus University). The GeoBasis programme is divided into a number of sub-groups, including:
