Stations for Measuring forest Ecosystem-Atmosphere Relationships (SMEAR I-III)

    Facility/equipment: Equipment

    • Location

      Finland

    Description

    To understand climate change, we need long-term, continuous and comprehensive field measurements. Three SMEAR stations are currently in operation, and all the measurement data, analysed results and infrastructures as such are generally available. All the field stations have comprehensive scientific programmes to investigate aerosol and trace gas concentrations, biosphere- atmosphere interactions, aerosol formation and growth, as well as biogenic background processes leading to aerosol formation.
