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.
The Finnish Meteorological Institute has developed a new statistical method for the mutual calibration of similar measurement instruments in different satellites.
The method does not require observing the same areas concurrently from a perpendicular direction. The new method does not require any information about the state of the Earth's surface or the atmosphere, and it can be applied for other viewing angles than a vertical angle, contrary to current methods.
