Observation Services unit belongs to Weather and Safety division of the Finnish Meteorological Institute.
Operational weather forecasts, environmental and atmospheric studies, safety and warning services all have an important role in society. None of these can be studied or applied without proper knowledge of weather conditions. Weather observations themselves are necessary indicators in weather-sensitive decision making. Observations are used by e.g. air traffic, maritime operations, tourism, agriculture, forestry, energy production, maintenance services, and private citizens. Among other activities, Jokioinen observatory is part of the Observation Services unit.
