On a documentary film assignment in Greenland, director Simon Stanford met climate researcher, professor Mikael Sejr of the Greenland Ecosystem Monitoring Program. He shared some of the insights into climate change he and his team have gained over the 23 years that have worked in this remote and sensitive environment. By observing and measuring kelp they are able to track how diminishing sea ice promotes increased seasonal growth by exposing the plant to more light.
