Climate System Research
Climate change, carbon sinks and greenhouse gases are central research topics of the Climate System Research Unit.
In Climate System Modelling, we produce scenarios of climate change for several purposes and participate in the preparation of the scenarios for the Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC specializing in aerosol impacts.
In Carbon Cycle research, we develop models of vegetation and soil for the purposes of climate change research and carbon sink verification, develop means to enhance carbon sequestration and participate in the preparation of the global methane budget of the Global Carbon Project.
In Greenhouse Gas research, we study the atmosphere, soil and water bodies, take responsibility of the Finnish Meteorological Institute's measurements in the European Carbon Observatory System ICOS and calibrate others' ICOS measurements across Europe using our mobile laboratory.
