Arctic Space Centre
New remote sensing platform at FMI Arctic Space Centre
The tower installation, built in 2018 as a part of the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS), provides as extensive array of automated reference measurements ranging from the carbon flux to meteorological data and forest, soil and snow cover properties.
Arctic Variety: Exploring the Snow (in Finnish)
Somewhere in Sodankylä researchers are digging a hole in the snow and sweeping the snow with a paintbrush. Why and how is snow studied?
Auroras and Space Weather
How auroras form? Tiera Laitinen from FMI will explain this (in Finnish)
PECASUS Global Space Weather Center will improve aviation safety (in Finnish)
FMI-SPACE research scientist Iolanda Ialongo talked about how her project had used satellite observations to reveal new, global-level information about air pollution. (Pitch in Finnish, 18th September 2018) Listen at the Academy of Finland YouTube-channel: https://youtu.be/7MS3zr04jOo
Getting to know weather stations in Kumpula and Sodankylä by The Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland (in Finnish)
Studying snow at the FMI Arctic Space Centre in Sodankylä during SnowAPP field campaign in 2019. An international team of snow experts studied snow properties and monitored snow evolution to better understand the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with snow, and to develop improved snow monitoring techniques using satellite data.
Measuring the properties of snow cover, such as snow density, microstructure and liquid water content, is important for many scientific fields including hydrology, climate studies and remote sensing. Together with WSL-SLF, Météo France and FMI, IEEE GRSS has produced a training video introducing both basic and advanced methods for measuring these properties in field conditions. The methods are applied worldwide in snow studies, and the video is of interest to any student or scientist intending to study snow.
