The Finnish Meteorological Institute
Best selection of services – for the safety and smooth operation of the society
When encountering unexpected weather or conditions – whether inland, at sea or on air, over the next few hours or far ahead in the future – consequences may be unfortunate, or, in the worst case, even severe and long-lasting.
We conduct research and make observations constantly to better understand the effects of the atmosphere, seas and space on our conditions. The international dimension is closely linked to all of our operations.
High-quality research and research-based and customer-oriented services, communications, distribution channels for correct information and, above all, information corresponding to the needs of our customers support planning, preparing and decision-making.
