GeoBasis Zackenberg - Soil properties - MM2_Active_layer

Active layer is measured at the fluxstation 'MM2' which is situated in a continous fen called 'Rylekæret'. Active layer is measured during the snow free season ca. every third day. Active layer depths are recorded relative to fix rods at minimum 5 locations and corrected after the season. In 2013 measurements from the first fix pole could not be corrected as the fix pole broke. There are no measurements from 2018, as the fix pole where not referenced to the surface. Soil properties:Soil properties 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:
