Daneborg

Daneborg (74º28 ‘N, 20º34’ W) is a resort located on the south coast of the Wollaston Foreland Peninsula. This “village” is located in north-east Greenland and at the mouth of the Young Sund which flows into the Greenland Sea. Daneborg is first and foremost the headquarters of the Sirius patrol, which patrols the coast of the Northeast Greenland National Park, the largest national park in the world.

This is also the site where the University of Aarhus in Denmark has chosen to install an included marine station in the Zackenberg station. Zackenberg / daneborg is a research infrastructure in Greenland in the upper Northeast Arctic. The station is operated by the Zackenberg Secretariat and the Department of Bioscience of the University of Aarhus.

The objective of the station is to facilitate research in ecology in the High Arctic. This includes:

Quantitative documentation feeding a database on including Young Sund Fjord (structure and process),
Studies to describe a baseline of short-term and long-term variations intrinsic to this ecosystem,
Retrospective analyzes of biological (organic) and inorganic (material) material to detect past ecosystem changes,
Experimental studies.

In particular, we collaborate with Mikael Sejr on all BeBEST (diving) missions on this site (Department of Bioscience – Arctic Research Center Ny Munkegade, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark).
