Titel:
A Beauty for the Eye, but What Shapes Icebergs in Greenland?

Beskrivelse:
The overall goal of this research project is to describe the different ice-types in Nuup Kangerlua (Godthåbsfjord) and their seasonal variation. Ice-types will be linked to physical and chemical ice properties and environmental parameters in order to obtain a better understanding of the impact of melting ice in Greenland fjords. We will sample ice and icebergs and develop an ice-type photo archive with links to ice properties and environmental parameters.

Besides producing scientific value, the project aims at involving the general public, because icebergs are a beauty for the eyes of both local people and tourists. We will make the pictures available on a website and invite people to send their own photographs as well. So the research project will involve the local society and promote research in Greenland.
