Seminar – Uncertainties of forest carbon balance

Venue: Metla Vantaa unit

Practical information

The seminar takes place in the Metla Vantaa unit.

The easiest way to reach Metla from central Helsinki is to take train to Tikkurila. Trains (I, K, N, T, H, R and Z) operate between Helsinki and Tikkurila. Tickets can be bought from the train (from railroad car with "Lipunmyynti" sign). From the Tikkurila station it is a walk of 10 minutes to Metla.

Posters: If you will, you can bring a poster for the meeting and poster sessions will take place during the coffee break on Wednesday and also afternoon on Thursday.
