And so it begins!

After 3 days of travel, we have finally arrived at the Arctic Station situated near Qeqertarsuaq on Disko Island. This station is the oldest research station in the Arctic, founded in 1906.

For me, this is the first time in Greenland. I am amazed. The sheer beauty of the ice fjords, icebergs, autumn colours and snowy mountains is breath taking.

Today we did a dwarf-birch sample session at the CENPERM seasonal warming experiments, near the station to kick off this fieldwork.

In later posts I hope to keep you updated on our progression!
