About this book

Language: English

A thousand kilometres south of Greenland's northernmost coastal stretch lies the last great Arctic tundra. A last stop before the great northern expanses is transformed into Arctic desert. Zackenberg is the name of this Arctic pearl, and in 1992 this area was selected as the ideal place for a High Arctic scientific field station. The Danish Polar Center's major research effort here is a success, and there is great interest in becoming part of the research that is trying from all conceivable scientific angles to shed light on the dynamics of an Arctic ecosystem.

Thomas B. Berg's research background is wildlife biology. His dedicated work consists of monitoring the land mammals – from lemmings to musk-oxen. The many tasks of the summer take him far and wide in the landscape, from the ice-filled mouth of Young Sound along the wet grass meadows to the unyielding, windswept boulder fields of the inland area.

In this book, Thomas B. Berg is generously sharing his unique experiences from the summer stays at Zackenberg. His vivid descriptions and outstanding photographs take us on an unforgettable journey to this Arctic pearl.
