Ecosystem-Atmosphere Interactions – Rinnan Lab

The Rinnan Lab explores the controls on the exchange of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) between ecosystems and the atmosphere. We use state-of-the-science techniques for measurement of BVOC emissions from plants, emissions and uptake by soils, and their exchange at the ecosystem scale. We conduct experiments in the laboratory and in the field, predominantly in the arctic environments.

Riikka Rinnan is a professor in the Terrestrial Ecology Section, Department of Biology and a principal investigator at the Center for Permafrost (CENPERM), University of Copenhagen, Denmark. For other group members, scroll down on this page.
