Honorary doctorate in science was conferred on Professor Emeritus Anders Lindroth from Lund University in the University of Helsinki conferment ceremony on 23.05.2019. Professor Emeritus Anders Lindroth (born 1948) from Lund University is an exceptionally versatile and multidisciplinary scholar of micrometeorology and biogeochemical cycles. His research topics include carbon, water and nitrogen cycles, biosphere-atmosphere interactions and energy exchange processes, topics of considerable currency, for example, in terms of the climate effects of forest use. Lindroth was one of the laureates of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 awarded for the work done by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He served as director of ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) Sweden until 2016 and has played an important part in the launching of ICOS operations in Finland.
