Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge keeps tabs on the use of reference in the scientific world for its Essential Science Indicators (ESI) service, presenting the most referred scientists within various fields.

Professor Kulmala has participated in projects and initiatives funded by NordForsk several times, and he is the Project Manager for the Nordic Centre of Excellence CRAICC within the Top-level Research Initiative.

Right now it is the world's most versatile station for atmospheric and biospheric measurement.
