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.
The Vlasiator simulator, developed at the Finnish Meteorological Institute, has predicted a new electrically charged high energy particle accelerator phenomenon in near-Earth space.
High energy particles are dangerous for satellites orbiting the Earth and for spacecraft crew. Furthermore, accelerated particles produce data on the interaction between the Earth and the solar wind.
