INAR RI belongs to the National Research Infrastructure Roadmap 2014-2020.

Key national INAR RI measurement stations include four SMEAR (Station for Measuring Earth system - Atmosphere Relations) stations and the Pallas-Sodankylä Global Atmospheric Watch station. The SMEAR-stations measure the relationship of atmosphere and Earth surface in the boreal climate zone. Many of the national INAR RI measurement sites and platforms contribute to several European and Global research infrastructures and Earth Observation networks.
