Kangerlussuaq region

In the Kangerlussuaq region, we will sample watersheds on the surface of the ice sheet and drainages from beneath the ice sheet that source the Watson River, which flows about 40 km across the deglaciated landscapes and discharges to the Kangerlussuaq fjord.  We will also sample another watershed in the inland region that is separated from the ice sheet by hydrologic divides and thus drains only precipitation through Lake Helen to the Kangerlussuaq Fjord.
