The Mysterious Arctic Sea TomatoLatest update June 3, 2019 Started on July 1, 2010
20 students from Greenland, Denmark, and the U.S. will study underwater life in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland's most famous lake, where tomato-like, softball-sized cyanobacteria colonies cover the bottom and are changing ecosystem processes.
Where is Qaqotooroq now? Well, for the next three weeks, Qaqortooroq is packed with our other scientific gear bound for Greenland. First stop, Scotia, NY, where after clearing customs, Qaqortooroq will board a LC-130 Hercules cargo plane, c/o the 109th Air National Guard. From NY, it's just a quick 6 hour flight to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, where we will reunite with Qaqortooroq on June 24.
Safe travels Q! We are so excited to have you on our 2019 JSEP team!
