Science / project plan

With increasing oil exploration activities in the Greenland Sea more information on the ecology and temporal and spatial sensitivity of this very little studied marine ecosystem, is needed for environmental planning and regulation, in order to meet the goal of minimal environmental impact. A Strategic Environmental Study Plan for Northeast Greenland for providing environmental information for planning and regulating oil exploration activities and oil spill response in the Greenland Sea has been established. As a part of this an interdisciplinary survey with RV Dana is planned in August/September 2017. The study will integrate biological oceanographic ship based and airplane based surveys, linking the physical oceanography with the lower trophic levels and the distribution of fish (including acoustic fish abundance survey), seabirds and marine mammals.

Field site: RV Dana, Greenland Sea

PI:Eva Friis Møller
