International collaboration

Sky and Earth by ESO and NASA

Somewhat over 60 researchers and doctoral student work in the fields of geophysics and astronomy. The reasearch in astronomy reaches from the planetary system to star and galaxy formation and activity. In geophysics the research covers solid earth, hydrospheric and planetary geophysics. In space physics the research focus is in space plasma physics and space weather.

The national collaboration in astronomy takes place through the Finnish Centre for Astronomy with ESO, FINCA. Space physics and astronomy research is conducted within the framework of the Kumpula Space Centre.
