Titel:
The Role of Macro-Algae and Near-Shore Mixing on Productivity of the Fiord

Beskrivelse:
Greenland is characterized by a vast and heterogenerous coastline. A lot of marine research as yet has focused on the central regions of the fiord while processes along a cross-section of the fiord remain largely unstudied. These shallower regions are however often characterized by extensive macro-algae beds or intense mixing, and are important breeding and feeding places for fish. In this proposal we aim to study the importance of these near-shore areas, and specifically quantify the role of maro-algae beds and tidal mixing in shallow areas.
