SYPNOPSIS
Zackenberg Station is one of the world’s most northern ecological research bases. It was founded in 1995 on the principle that it will take 50 years of concerted, continuous monitoring of all aspects of an ecosystem to discover how global warming is affecting it. I visited Zackenberg to learn what researchers had learned so far. I produced radio features and web features for my micro website on Greenland and Iceland.
