Fields of expertise

  • NWP-nowcast model: Harmonie, MetCoOP

  • Meso-scale modeling; LAPS- and MM5/WRF-model

  • Precipitation; precipitation accumulation

  • Wind energy; wind power estimation in cold climate (icing), wind atlas


  • Harmonie-Nowcast model within the framwork of MetCoOP; Setup and developments of operational short-term forecasts, for the Finland-Sweden-Norway area.

  • LAPS (Local Analysis and Prediction System) - model; High resolution analysis and forecast of areas such as bigger cities and their environments. Current developments: a) improved precipitation analysis, and b) wind power estimations in icing conditions.

  • MM5 (Meso-scale Model 5) - model; Meso-scale modeling of areas with complex terrain (coastlines, mountainous areas, valleys, cities etc.). MM5 is used within wind power estimations and to build up of wind atlases.
