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.
In cooperation between the Finnish Meteorological Institute and the Climate Service Center Germany GERICS the regional climate model REMO was developed to include an interactive lake module.
Our study shows that in 35-years long high-resolution simulations the new model version can reproduce the state of the Fenno-Scandinavian lakes realistically, thus leading to a better representation of the overall climate.
