The coupling of the Earth's surface and the overlying atmosphere through mass and energy fluxes has an important role in atmospheric chemistry and physics in addition to boundary layer meteorology and ecosystem research. Our research group aims at increasing the fundamental understanding of atmosphere-biosphere coupling for different ecosystems and surfaces and to apply the gained information for practical applications and purposes. Our research group is part of Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR).
New observation station at a former peat extraction area
A new observation station has been set up in Naarasneva, Soini, to study the climate impacts of the afforestation of a former peat extraction...
Successions in peatland types will mitigate warming-related increase of methane emissions
Climate change is likely to promote Sphagnum-establishments over brown mosses in many places of northern peatlands.
