Outposts: CI-600 In-Situ Root Imager at the Arctic Station
Icebergs dot the bay along the coast of Disko Island, home of the University of Copenhagen’s Arctic Station. Here researchers study environmental issues impacting the Polar Regions, including physical geography, botany, and zoological research.

Dr. Marie Frost Arndal, Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, is heading a research project studying root dynamics in the Arctic. Her team is using the CI-600 root scanner and minirhizotrons to measure diameter, length, and growth patterns of individual roots, investigating the effects of increased snow accumulation, removal of above-ground shrub biomass and seasonal warming on root dynamics. Dr. Arndal’s project will analyze root growth patterns for several years to estimate longevity under different climate conditions.
We always enjoy learning how our instruments are being used around the world. Send us a picture of your project to be featured on CID Blog “Outposts!”
