Exploring arctic interactions and global change

Earth and near-space system and environmental change

We seek to understand the near-Earth space, Earth’s atmosphere and the Earth’s changing environment. This research includes studies at Oulu campus, the Sodankylä Geophysical Observatory and the Oulanka Research station. Geoscience and biosciences focus on boreal and Arctic systems.

Multidisciplinary research activities in the focus area are coordinated by the Kvantum Institute. Research is conducted mainly in the Faculties of Science and Technology.
