The Department of Geosciences and Geography has modern research laboratories, databases, and a national seismic station network. Our laboratories serve research groups and provide analysis services for various purposes. Some of our laboratories also produce data and time series for use in the Department’s research and teaching.
The operations of the University of Helsinki multidisciplinary Taita Research Station in the Kenyan Taita Hills are coordinated and led by our department’s personnel.
The department coordinates the participation of Finnish universities and research institutes on the European Plate Observing System EPOS research infrastructure. The Finnish component of EPOS (FIN-EPOS) maintains geophysical observatories and laboratories in Finland.
