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.
A new record for snowfall within 24 hours was measured in Finland on 8 January 2016 when 73 cm of snow fell in less than 24 hours in Merikarvia.
Such sea-effect snowfall situations may cause serious problems for transport and power lines in coastal areas. Predicting and understanding them better is therefore important for humanity.
