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.
According to a study examining the correlation between mortality and temperature, the mortality risk increases by about 14% when the average daily temperature is -20 °C, when using the baseline of the death rate at a temperature of +14 °C, where the mortality risk for Finns is at its lowest.
The temperature dependence of mortality is typically U-shaped - in other words, the risk of mortality grows as a result of both cold stress and heat stress. Mortality is at its lowest in climatic conditions to which people have adapted best.
