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.
Health hazards vary according to the weather: heat increases mortality, while pleasant summer temperatures increase the risk for young people to fracture an elbow, for instance.
The linkage between mortality and temperature is U-shaped: both hot and cold temperatures increase the risk of mortality. Mortality is lowest in climatic conditions to which people are best adapted. In Finland mortality is at its lowest when the average daily temperature is about +14 degrees Celsius, which in Finland means a typical summer day when the daytime temperature is slightly above 20 degrees and the overnight temperature is slightly below 10 degrees.
