GeoBasis Zackenberg - Geomorphology - Coastal_profile P2

The Coastal dynamics, sediment transport, are monitored in two detailed terrain profiles. Profile 2 is a c.140 m long profile in an aggrading coastal plain with beach ridges (see map in: GeoBasis_Zack_Geomorphology_P2_Coastal_profile.pdf). The coordinates giving here are from a fix peg along the profile. The profile has been monitored approximately every second year from 1991-2013, whereafter the frequency of measurements has been reduced to every fifth year. Geomorphology:Geomorphology GeoBasis Zackenberg: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:
