Kongsfjorden is directly influenced by inflow of warm atlantic water and is therefore a highly sensitive marine system to climate change in the Arctic and represents one of the most comprehensive environmental monitoring locations in the Arctic. The Kongsfjorden System Flagship brings together the scientists working on this system, to increase cooperation and coordination.
