Project description
Finnish Marine Research Infrastructure (FINMARI) combines all major components of the Finnish marine research community. It is a distributed infrastructure network of field stations, research vessels and multi-purpose icebreakers, laboratory facilities, ferryboxes, fixed measurement platforms, and buoys. FINMARI, coordinated by the Marine Research Centre of SYKE, allies research infrastructure of 4 Finnish research institutes (Finnish Environment Institute, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Geological Survey of Finland, Natural Resources Institute Finland), major field stations of 3 universities (Helsinki, Turku, Åbo Academi), and a state-owned shipping company (Arctia Shipping). FINMARI provides a unique contact point to observational and experimental Finnish marine research facilities. Our joint infrastructure development plan is based on addressing the multiscale variability of the marine environment through synergetic integration of the research foci of the partnership.
