Science / project plan

The aim of the project is to map the extent of glacial flour in a large lake, Tasersuaq, in the Nuuk region, and collect samples of the sediment. The acoustic survey is carried out with a C-boom using a speed boat. For sediment sampling we use a coring platform and a vibrocorer or a Russian peat corer. Four persons using M/S Kisaq as their base take part in the field work.
