Lammi Biological Station Prof. Lauri Arvola 4 seniors, 3 post docs, 5 post grads, 3 assistants Research interests Functioning of boreal forest lake ecosystems Limnology on a watershed scale Boreal Aquatic Ecology Research Group Photos: Ilpo Hakala CREON/GLEON Workshop, Townsville March 28-31, 2006 – Marko Järvinen Lammi Finland Europe
Photo: Ilpo Hakala Ongoing and Recent Projects Impact of climate on lake ecosystems Impact of land use and climate on riverine nutrient and DOM transport CO 2 and CH 4 emissions from boreal lakes Role of DOC in food webs and carbon cycle Long-term limnological data sets Intensive monitoring data Meteorological variables Thermistor chains Limnological variables (probes 2006) LTER ?
