NeIC – The Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration

The Nordic e-Infrastructure Collaboration (NeIC) is an organisation that facilitates the development and operation of high-quality e-Infrastructure solutions in areas of joint Nordic interest. The NeIC is a distributed organisation consisting of technical experts from academic high-performance computing centres across the Nordic countries. The NeIC is administered by NordForsk and funded by national research funding agencies (in Finland by the Academy of Finland).

Euclid – A space mission to map the Dark Universe

Euclid Cosmology Mission is the next cosmology satellite of the European Space Agency (ESA). The main object of Euclid is to solve the mystery of dark energy – why is the expansion of the universe accelerating. Dark energy represents around 75 % of the energy content of the Universe today, and together with dark matter it dominates the Universes' matter-energy content. Both are mysterious and of unknown nature but control the past, present and future evolution of Universe.

Simulating Antarctic marine ice sheet stability and multi-century contributions to sea level rise

Understanding and predicting the behaviour of the Antarctic Ice Sheet (AIS) on decadal to centennial time scales is of global importance to policy decisions, mainly due high uncertainty in the AIS contribution to sea level change. Significant regions of the AIS rest on bedrock below sea level and may be vulnerable to Marine Ice Sheet Instability (MISI), a mechanism for rapid and potentially irreversible discharge of ice. Due to large uncertainty as to which basins are vulnerable to MISI, and how rapid their unstable retreat might be, even the sign of the contribution of the AIS to sea level rise remains uncertain according to the fifth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

EISCAT_3D

The EISCAT_3D incoherent scatter radar is a major step forward in Finnish scientific research on near-Earth space and climate. The system can be used to obtain new data on, for example, how solar storms and space weather affect the upper atmosphere in the Arctic region or how interference caused by space weather affects technological systems, such as satellites and power grids.
