Leena Järvi


Curriculum Vitae

I'm Associate Professor in Applied Urban Meteorology at the Institute for Atmospheric and Ecosystem Research and Helsinki Institute of Sustainability Science at the University of Helsinki. My research interests lie in urban meteorology, climate and air quality using multiple state-of-the art methods varying from eddy covariance observations to urban land surface modelling and large eddy simulations. My groups specific research interests are

  • The effect of urban vegetation on urban greenhouse gas emissions, local climatology and hydrology, and how vegetation should be described in urban models
  • Modelling of urban air quality using LES and the effect of different urban planning alternatives and meteorological conditions on the pollutant concentrations
  • Surface energy balance and hydrological cycle in cold climate cities
