Villum Research Station
Villum Research Station is a research facility at the military outpost Station Nord in high arctic North Greenland (81°36’ N, 16°40’ W). It is owned by the Greenland Government and is being operated by Aarhus University (Denmark) in cooperation with the Danish Defense (the Arctic Command). The station was founded in 2014 based on means provided by the Danish private fund Villum Foundation.
The station hosts individual scientific projects focusing on atmospheric, marine and terrestrial research. In addition to this, the station is also used as a permanent base for an extensive long-term monitoring programme with main focus on atmospheric pollution, but also including effects of Climate Change on arctic marine and terrestrial ecosystems.
