Erken Laboratory

Norr Malma field station with the Erken Laboratory makes part of the Department of Limnology. It has since its foundation in the 1940s served both as a research station and as a study and course centre. The Erken laboratory has developed an extensive environmental monitoring program for Lake Erken, and it is one of the sites in GLEON, the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network. Researchers at Erken Laboratory participate in several large EU projects such as on the effects of climate change on lake ecosystems and automatic monitoring of phytoplankton development.

We are also active participants in Scifest, a science festival for schools and the general public. There we show how ecosystems in inland waters work and how they are affected. Read more about Scifest here.
