Ram Oren’s four-year Erkko Visiting Professorship is based in the forest science research group at the Centre of Excellence in Atmospheric Science. One of his main goals in Finland will be to study the structure and function of tree roots using precise analyses. This study will increase our understanding of how forest output, carbon and energy cycles, and the water supply are linked. A €3 million donation from the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation has enabled the University to launch a visiting programme for international top professors. https://www.helsinki.fi/en/news/leading-ecophysiologist-ram-oren-to-visit-helsinki
