The properties of the shortest waves were studied

The Finnish Meteorological Institute took part in a study conducted at the University of Miami, where the properties of very short waves were studies. Knowledge of the behaviour and interaction of these waves is important for e.g. the development of observational methods that are based on remote sensing.
