Danish research focus on Greenland
The Danish research agency for Nature and the Universe establishes a research base in North-East Greenland. This will make the researchers lives easier and save them great amounts in travel expenses.
The research base at Station North will have a logistics manager in charge of coordinating the activities. The research council for Nature and the Universe had a total sum of 125 million DKK that they granted in 2005, of which 9,4 million was granted for projects in the initiative Research in the North. The projects will provide new knowledge on themes such as: Why the inland ice is melting so quickly, the climates affect on life in the sea north of Thule, and how violent vulcanic activity affects Earth.
