We blog here!

Welcome to our blog to explore who we are and what we do! Our group studies the rapidly changing northern lakes, catchments and seas, and their interactions with each other and climate, from a temporal perspective. We look into the more recent and much deeper past of changing ecosystems via biological and geochemical information collected from sediment traps, sediment cores and other environmental samples. We are based at the Environmental Change Research Unit in the University of Helsinki, Finland.
