Our CoE is currently participating in following international research projects

  • Global

    • IGBP/iLEAPS (Integrated Land Ecosystem - Atmosphere Processes Study)
      iLEAPS is the land-atmosphere component of the Earth System Science Partnership, focussing on the basic biogeochemical processes that link land-atmosphere exchange, climate, the water cycle and tropospheric chemistry.
    • IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change)
    • PEEX (Pan-Eurasian Experiment) 2013-2033

    • Future Earth Finland (National Committee for Global Change Research)
      Future Earth Finland promotes interdisciplinary global change research, which has an impact on society. The national committee implements the objectives of Future Earth, the new global change research program coordinated by the International Council for Science, ICSU. The initiative aims for greater societal impact by involving the various stakeholders related to sustainable development in the design and dissemination of research. The secretariat of the national committees is located at the the Division of Atmospheric Sciences of the University of Helsinki which hosts also the secretariat of the European Alliance for Global Change Research Committees, a regional body for Future Earth in Europe.
    • European Alliance
      European Alliance is a bottom-up network of the European global change research national committees of the International Council for Science, ICSU. European Alliance facilitates science-driven discussion on European interests and priorities in global change research and promotes European level stakeholder engagement in the new global change research initiative, Future Earth. The Division of Atmospheric Sciences hosts the European Alliance Secretariat.

 

  • EU-European Research Council grants

    • ATMNUCLE (Atmospheric nucleation: from molecular to global scale) 2009-2013
      Project is FP7-European Research Council- Advanced Grant project studying mechanisms responsible for atmospheric new particle formation and processes of behavior of the global aerosol system.
    • MOCAPAF (Role of Molecular Cluster in Atmospheric Particle Formation) 2011-2016
      European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant.
      A multilevel computational and theoretical investigation provides formation rates and properties of atmospheric clusters and particles to aerosol dynamic and climate modellers. To capture the properties of the smallest clusters, we need to perform quantum chemical calculations, combined with simulations on cluster formation kinetics. The results of the molecule models are fed to thermodynamic models to extend their applicability to larger clusters.

 

  • EU- Initial Training Networks (ITN) - Marie Curie Actions

    • MC ITN CLOUD-TRAIN (Cosmics Leaving Outdoor Droplets)
      A multi-site network that investigates various aspects of the interactions of cosmic rays with aerosols and clouds, which bears on the possibility of a "solar indirect" contribution to climate change.

    • MC ITN HEXACOMM (Human EXposure to Aerosol Contaminants in Modern Micronevironments) 2013-2016
      The main research goal of HEXACOMM is to apply scientifically-based modelling and experimental methods to relate concentrations of particulate matter in the indoor domestic environment to its sources and human exposure implications. The second research objective is to determine the human exposure arising from such exposure at both individual and collective (population) scales at modern microenvironments.

 

  • EU Other

    • BACCHUS (Impact of Biogenic versus Anthropogenic emissions on Clouds and Climate: towards a Holistic UnderStanding), 2013-2017
      BACCHUS is an European FP7 Collaborative Project aiming to quantify key processes and feedbacks controlling aerosol cloud interactions by combining advanced measurements of cloud and aerosol properties with state-of-the-art numerical modelling.

    • COMBINE (Comprehensive Modelling of the Earth System for Better Climate Prediction and Projection), 2009-2013
      The European integrating project COMBINE brings together research groups to advance Earth system models (ESMs) for more accurate climate projections and for reduced uncertainty in the prediction of climate and climate change in the next decades.

    • ECLAIRE (Effects of Climate Change on Air Pollution and Response Strategies for European Ecosystems), 2011-2015
      The ÉCLAIRE project is funded by the EU's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7).

    • EINAR (European Institute for Research Atmospheric and Earth System Science)
    • GHG-LAKE (Towards a comprehensive understanding of transport of energy and greenhouse gases in lacustrine ecosystems)
    • HEXACOMM (Human EXposure to Aerosol Contaminants in Modern Micronevironments) 2013-2016
      The main research goal of HEXACOMM is to apply scientifically-based modelling and experimental methods to relate concentrations of particulate matter in the indoor domestic environment to its sources and human exposure implications. The second research objective is to determine the human exposure arising from such exposure at both individual and collective (population) scales at modern microenvironments.

    • ICOS-INWIRE (ICOS improved sensors, network and interoperability for GMES), 2013-2015
      The fundamental objective of the ICOS-INWIRE project is to enhance the capabilities of the ICOS infrastructure and fill in critical gaps for monitoring fluxes and concentrations of greenhouse gases, in order to meet the needs of operational users in the GMES program.

    • JPI Climate
      Collaboration between 13 European countries to coordinate jointly their climate research and fund new transnational research initiatives. JPI Climate connects scientific disciplines, enables cross-border research and increases the science-practice interaction.

    • MarcoPolo-R (a Near Earth Object sample return mission)
      MarcoPolo-R is a mission whose primary objective is a sample return from a primitive Near-Earth Asteroid, based along the lines of the former Marco Polo study mission, addressing a similar set of questions, many of which can only be answered by ground-based laboratory analysis, but with a revised approach that reduces the original cost.

    • PEGASOS (Pan-European Gas-AeroSOls-climate interaction study) 2011-2014
      Aims to estimate better air pollution in Europe and its impact on climate, to support the EC/Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution and Air Quality regulation, and to better quantify regional and global links between air pollution and climate change to underpin mitigation options and other policy initiatives.

    • TTORCH (Tall tower and surface observation research network for verification of climate relevant emission of human origin in Europe)
      In TTORCH we will strengthen the further integration of the network of observatories of long lived non-CO 2 greenhouse gases and related tracers in Europe to an observational system of high consistency, quality and precision, while taking care of coordinating carefully with the developments in the ICOS project. Extension to the more Eastern part of Europe is needed.

 

  • Nordic

    • CRAICC (Cryosphere-Atmosphere interactions in Changing Arctic Climate)2011-2015
      CRAICC is part of the Top-level Research Initiative (TRI), the largest joint Nordic research and innovation initiative to date, aiming to strengthen research and innovation regarding climate change issues in the Nordic Region.

    • DEFROST (Impacts of a changing cryosphere - depicting ecosystem-climate feedbacks from permafrost, snow and ice) 2011-2015
      The aim is to understand how climate change induced changes in the cryosphere influence the ecosystem/geosphere processes which directly affect climate. We will focus on key terrestrial, lacustrine and marine cryospheric components that have the potential for giving rise to substantial changes in climate feedback mechanisms both in terms of surface-atmosphere energy exchange and exchanges of greenhouse gases.

    • SVALI (Stability and Variations of Arctic Land Ice) 2011-2015
      SVALI is a part of the Top-level Research Initiative, which is a major Nordic collaborative venture for studies of climate, energy and the environment. The SVALI NCoE is together with NCoE DEFROST and NCoE CRAICC within the TRI sub-programme “Interaction between Climate Change and the Cryosphere” (ICCC), which aims to improve our understanding of stability, variations and dynamics of the cryosphere.
