  "abstract": "<p>A multidisciplinary cruise was carried out off west Greenland during the period 17/7 to 29/7<br>\n(incl. transit 13/7 to 30/7) 2021, covering the area from north of Nuuk to north of Disko island<br>\nby a set of latitudinal sampling transects. The plans for the cruise was challenged by corona<br>\nrestrictions necessitating changes to initial cruise track, and by generally windy working<br>\nconditions, but overall, planned sampling activities were successfully carried out.</p>\n\n<p><br>\nThis field work is an important element of the HORIZON-2020 supported project ECOTIP<br>\nwhich is carried out from 2020 to 2024. ECOTIP aims at improving our understanding of<br>\nanthropogenic changes in the biological production and diversity in the Arctic marine regions,<br>\nand their effects on the ecosystem services. The work has special emphasis on the evaluation of<br>\nwhether a change in the lower trophic levels, due to the increased temperature and freshwater<br>\noutflow, can trigger an ecosystem tipping cascade that ultimately will change the important<br>\nbenthic-pelagic coupling and carbon sequestration processes as well as the fisheries production.<br>\nDuring the cruise several of ECOTIP&rsquo;s scientific sub-topics were emphasized. Sampling and<br>\ninvestigations were set up for assessment of hydrographic and ecosystem variability both from<br>\nthe coastal to offshore areas and from boreal areas off Nuuk to the Arctic areas north of Disko<br>\nBay, and sampling and measurements was to a large extent carried out at sites from which<br>\nhistorical information is available. We measured biodiversity at trophic levels from bacteria to<br>\nfish larvae, and carried out a wide range of process studies investigating e.g. microbial activity,<br>\nbenthic processes and the biological pump. Further, chemistry and pollution of the marine area<br>\nwere considered.</p>\n\n<p><br>\nMany fundamental elements of the arctic marine ecosystem have already changed, and many<br>\nobservations and samples from the cruise contributes valuable new information to support the<br>\nassessment and modeling of biological changes under the future climate scenarios.</p>",
