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 fresh study shows how the formation and movement of sea ice affect the drift of methane from continental shelves to central parts of the Arctic Ocean.
In the winter methane from ice that forms on continental shelves ends up back in the surface layers of sea water and not directly into the atmosphere like it does in summer when the seas on the continental shelves are largely ice-free.
