Information about climate variations in Arctic Fennoscandia from new atmospheric analyses

Information about climate variations in Arctic Fennoscandia from new atmospheric analyses

Research showed that examined new analyses described the main geographical characteristics of temperatures in Fennoscandia very well.

New analysis of the atmosphere combines surface observations taken at weather stations, weather balloon probes, and satellite observations collected internationally over the years. Combining them occurs with the help of physical models describing atmospheric behaviour.
