Greenhouse Gases and Satellite Methods
In Greenhouse Gases and Satellite Methods group, we study the distribution of atmospheric greenhouse gases – mainly carbon dioxide and methane – through both space-based and ground-based remote sensing.
We utilize and develop extensive ground-based greenhouse gas measurements at Sodankylä in Northern Finland.
These measurements provide an essential validation source for increasing volumes of satellite observations at high latitudes, e.g.
One of our focus areas is to develop methods for satellite-data driven estimations of greenhouse gas sources and sinks.
We also investigate and develop mathematical methods for time series analysis, data assimilation, data fusion, and satellite data interpretation, including uncertainty quantification.
The group is part of the Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence in Inverse Modeling and Imaging.
