Infrastructure

The research infrastructure in INAR is called INAR RI. The components of INAR RI study the atmosphere, biosphere and their interactions. INAR RI is a next generation RI, where co-located comprehensive and multidisciplinary measurements enable studying complicated interaction and feedback processes between different environmental variables, and where observations and experimental measurements support each other in cost-effective way.

INAR RI includes a number of well-equipped, continuously functioning field measurement stations around Finland, and experimental atmosphere and ecological laboratories. Our key strength is the combination of comprehensive, continuous long-term observations, extensive field and laboratory experiments, use of satellite data, and advanced modeling leading to theoretical understanding and quantitative predictions of different atmosphere-biosphere processes, and innovative method and instrument development.
