Northern LTSER platform
Northern LTSER-platform constitutes a unique environmental transect from northern boreal forest landscapes to arctic tundra. The LTSER platform operates as a sensitive instrument to assess drivers, pressures and state of environment at multiple spatial scales both on nature and human systems and their interaction. The platform consists of two LTSER-areas (Kuusamo and Enontekiö) and additional LTER-sites (Universities' research stations Kilpisjärvi, Kevo, Oulanka and Värriö) and supportive facilities by research units of Finnish Forest Research Institute.
