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.
Researchers at the Finnish Meteorological Institute have studied the capability of computational sea models to simulate currents in the Gulf of Finland. The ability of sea models to depict currents is important for evaluating the spread of nutrients in Finnish sea areas or the drift of oil, for example.
