Integrated Atmospheric and Earth System Research Infrastructure

INAR RI is an umbrella research infrastructure, coordinating the distributed national nodes of European environmental research infrastructures (ICOS, ACTRIS, eLTER and AnaEE) in Finland. The components of INAR RI study the atmosphere, biosphere and their interactions.

An important part of INAR RI activities has been building new INAR RI facilities and the development of Finnish national practices for ecosystem data management and access provision. 

The current main aim for 2024-2027 is to upgrade the existing RI with a focus on the urban and agricultural environments and develop services to help the society answer questions related to air quality and climate change. This strongly supports the national goal of carbon neutrality by providing missing information regarding urban and agricultural emissions as the upgrade will allow to access the full air quality and climate impact related to agricultural activities and urban greenery. 

As part of INAR RI activities, CSC provides expertise and support on data management and organises INAR RI data workshops.
