Summer trainee: Satellite data product operator

The Earth Observation Research unit of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) is looking for an undergraduate student interested in a summer trainee position.

The Earth Observation Research unit focuses on remote sensing of the atmospheric composition and the cryosphere as well as the development of retrieval methods. Within the unit, the Cryospheric Processes group develops new remote sensing sensors and techniques for observing different processes of the cryosphere, such as snow cover and the seasonal freezing and thawing of soils.

We offer a summer trainee position in support of the generation of an operational satellite product for seasonal freezing and thawing of soils, using data from the European Space Agencys Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity Mission (SMOS). The trainee will 1) oversee the processing chain and data flow of the operational product 2) take part in development of the retrieval algorithm and related quality control tools as a part of the project team 3) assist in maintaining the web page of the operational product.

Summer trainee: Microwave instrument operator

Summer trainee: Operation of ground based radars, microwave radiometers and in situ instrumentation as reference for satellite remote sensing

The Earth Observation Research unit of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) is looking for an undergraduate student interested in a summer trainee position.

The Arctic Space Centre of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (space.fmi.fi) is located in Sodankylä, approx. 120 km north of the Arctic Circle. The Centre hosts programs exploring upper-air chemistry and physics, atmospheric column measurements, snow and soil hydrology, biosphere-atmosphere interaction and satellite calibration-validation studies. The Arctic Space Centre hosts also the main infrastructure of FMI for Earth Observation satellite data reception, storage and distribution and operates a suite of ground-based microwave remote sensing reference instruments (radiometers and radars), which are used in the development of geophysical retrieval algorithms for present and future satellite sensors.

We offer a summer trainee position for a student motivated to learn skills in practical ground-based remote sensing and satellite calibration/validation activities. The trainee will oversee the operation of ground based instruments (radars and radiometers), perform quality control tasks, install and maintain in situ reference instrumentation (weather stations etc.) and perform dedicated in situ experiments (e.g., measurements of vegetation properties, soil moisture) in field conditions as necessary.

Summer trainee: Development of UAV and ground based measurements for greenhouse gases and vegetation

Are you looking for a summer job in atmospheric research? Are you interested to work in a meteorological observatory? Do you want to learn about remote sensing and in situ methods to measure solar- induced fluorescence and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere?

In Sodankylä at the Finnish Meteorological Institute we are currently developing new measurement systems to study solar-induced fluorescence (a plant process that occurs during photosynthesis) and distribution of greenhouse gases in the Earths atmosphere. The research is motivated by the fact that as of today available information about solar- induced fluorescence and greenhouse gas related processes over northern boreal forest is still very limited. The summer tasks will include laboratory work to develop new instrumentation. Secondly the trainee would be involved in field measurements, making use of the recently developed equipment for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and other platforms. The ground based measurements are closely linked to several space borne missions, including Nasas Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 and the Sentinel-5P mission by the European Space Agency.
