World-leading meteorological expert services and weather information systems

FINNISH METEOROLOGICAL INSTITUTE’S (FMI) mission is to produce high-quality services and scientific knowledge on the atmosphere and seas. We develop and run our own atmospheric, marine and road weather models to provide safety and added value for all transportation modes. The main objectives are to provide the best possible information about the atmosphere above and around Finland, ensuring public safety and fluency related to weather and conditions. FMI possesses wide expertise in R&D and end-user services.

Some of our key research areas include the development of innovative and intelligent road weather models. FMI is also studying the possibilities of exchanging weather and safety data directly with road users via its experimental combined Road Weather Station and Roadside Unit (RWS/ RSU) concept station installed nearby FMI facilities in Sodankylä, Northern Finland.
