- Greenland and Nuuk’s current climate experiences arctic to subarctic weather; meaning cool summers and cold winters (The World Factbook). Climate across the country is fairly uniform. To illustrate further, essentially none of the land is arable and only coastal regions are habitable, particularly the southern end, where Nuuk is located.

Work focuses on three fjord systems (Nuup Kangerlua, SW Greenland, Disko Fjord, W Greenland and Young Sound, NE Greenland) all influenced by glaciers and/or melt rivers connected to the Greenland Ice Sheet. MarineBasis Nuuk is located in Godthåbsfjord (74°18′N, 20°18′W), a deep fjord system with an average depth of 250 m (max. depth >600m) covering 2013 km 2 and an outer-sill region. The long-term marine monitoring program was initiated in 2005 with some preexisting time series going ...
In Greenland, an autonomous territory of the Kingdom of Denmark, the climate is arctic along the north-central coasts (zone 1 on the map), where the temperatures of the warmest months are around freezing (0 °C or 32 °F) and subarctic on the south-central coasts (zone 2 on the map), where the average temperatures in the summer months are above freezing, but still below 10 °C (50 °F). It goes without saying that the largest settlements are located in this area that has a relatively milder ...
Greenland's climate is a tundra climate on and near the coasts and an ice cap climate in inland areas. It typically has short, cool summers and long, moderately cold winters. Due to Gulf Stream influences, Greenland's winter temperatures are very mild for its latitude. In Nuuk, the capital, average winter temperatures are only −9 °C (16 °F).
The Arctic is a barometer for global climate change, and the changes occur faster here than in any other place in Earth. We already see changes in climate, ecosystems and living resources, also in Greenland. With a more than 2,000 km long north-south gradient and a relatively short ecosystem gradient from the Ice Sheet to […]
Abstract. We assess the runoff and surface mass balance (SMB) of the Greenland ice sheet in the Nuuk region (southwest) using output of two regional climate models (RCMs) evaluated by observations. The region encompasses six glaciers that drain into Godthåbsfjord.
