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.
A new water-sulphuric acid particle formation model improves the description of climate models for the formation of fine particles in the earth's upper atmosphere.
The model also helps in the understanding of the formation of clouds on Venus.
