Active research projects:

Arctic blue carbon: human and climatic drivers of change

This project will quantify current and historic rates and mechanisms of carbon sequestration, burial and remineralisation at a range of Greenlandic fjord systems under representative climate and land use changes. This will allow us to explore the future potential capacity of Greenland’s fjords to act as efficient carbon sinks in a changing climate and with increasing anthropogenic demands.
