International Eurasian Academy of Sciences (IEAS) European Centre is located at the Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR), University of Helsinki. The Centre is lead by Academician Professor Markku Kulmala. IEAS-Europe represents an interdisciplinary research platform involving leading scholars from European countries. Current activities of IEAS-Europe focus on research and education in environmental sciences, but prospectively the focus area will be extended to a wide range of exact sciences and the humanities.
With profound sadness we announce that our colleague Prof. Sergej Zilitinkevich passed away on February 15, 2021 after a short illness. With his passing we have lost a leading scientist in atmospheric turbulence. He will always be remembered as an inspirational and enthusiastic scientist. He was scientifically active until very end, underlined by the fact that his most recent international project had a kick-off meeting last week. His contributions in INAR, in Pan Eurasian Experiment and in the atmospheric science field in general will be dearly missed. On behalf of INAR we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Iryna Bashmakova and the whole Zilitinkevich family. Markku Kulmala, Tuukka Petäjä, Hanna Lappalainen
