Carrying out atmospheric measurements often entails having to consider how representative measurements taken in a single location are, and whether local conditions, such as landforms, affect observations. In a recent study using new methods we very carefully examined how representative our findings from the Puijo Tower aerosol and cloud observation station were.
The Finnish Meteorological Institute is a leading expert in meteorology, air quality, climate change, earth observation, marine and arctic research areas. FMI is in a unique position to study various themes of climate change in the Northern context.
High-quality observational data and 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.
