KANGERLUSSUAQ, GREENLAND– Limnology is the study of freshwater systems, like lakes.
We’ve been doing modern limnological sampling to better understand why the haptophyte algae (the producers of biological thermometers) fare so well in our Greenlandic study lakes… it’s still a mystery.
We sit on a rubber boat (a Zodiac) making measurements and taking different kinds of samples. Have a look at this video to see us recover sediment samples from last season, and get introduced to some of the equipment we use to sample water, algae and sediment.
