Planetary health for a brighter tomorrow

Global Ecosystem Health Observatory studies the condition of ecosystems to increase ecosystem resilience in a changing climate.

The Global Ecosystem Health Observatory (GEHO) is an interdisciplinary research team aiming to increase understanding of the current and future state of the world’s ecosystems. The present research focuses on forests, including developing remote sensing algorithms for monitoring forest health, mapping global tree mortality and modelling the climate risks to forests. Our work aims to increase ecosystems’ resilience under climate change by providing knowledge and tools that help various stakeholders in ecosystem management. The GEHO team is hosted by the University of Eastern Finland and is led by Associate Professor Samuli Junttila.
