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.
According to a fresh study satellite measurements give an adequate picture of variations in fine particle content on a scale of about a thousand kilometres.
In the study inaccuracies in remote sensing by satellite caused by variations in the content of fine particles in the atmosphere were examined. Fine particle content varied according to time and place. Variation in the study was evaluated by examining the statistical average standard deviation in different measurement diagrams. The results help in understanding the differences between satellite observations and observations made from the surface of the earth, thus improving the reliability of satellite measurements.
