Cape Morris Jessup
83°38'N, 32°39'W

Cape Morris Jessup is the northernmost area of Greenland, and North America. Contrasting samples collected from this super-site with samples collected at the southernmost part of Greenland (Prince Christian Sund, SG3) will be of particular interest. Collection of sea-ice samples and short sea-ice cores in this region will be considered. Terrestrial sampling at this vastly understudied area include ice cores, lake sediment cores, lake / snow / ice microbiology, drone surveys, and collection of rare vegetation and microbiological ‘baseline data’.
