Research at the Archipelago Research Institute
Archipelago Sea and Baltic Sea research
We carry out multidisciplinary research and teaching on the Archipelago Sea and Baltic Sea. The focus of our research is on the long-term monitoring and modelling of the marine environment.
Apart from marine research, ticks are also studied at Seili. Scientists of varying disciplines study the distribution and habitat requirements of ticks, and the diseases borne by them.
The Archipelago Research Institute belongs to the Finnish Marine Research Infrastructure. We offer visitors research and teaching services, such as laboratory space suitable for marine research. The institute is open throughout the year.
The institute has operated on the island of Seili since 1964, but the island's colourful history stretches much further back in time. Seili's unique nature, cultural heritage and long history have led to social, historical and cultural research playing a major role in the institute's activities. The multifacetedness of the island is an advantage when performing multidisciplinary research.
