High-quality research is utilized to develop services to benefit our everyday life. Visible examples are improvement of weather forecasts, development of new expert and warning services as well as applications of the newest research results.
FMI's researchers publish about 300 peer-reviewed articles annually.
In Science News we publish current information about FMI's studies on the weather, the sea and the climate.
Assumptions used in satellite measurements that ice crystals in cirrus clouds are similar can lead to errors of up to 40% in estimates of the clouds' optical thickness and an error of -40% in estimating the effective radius of the cloud droplets.
