FMI is a governmental institute for atmospheric research and weather services. It has over 500 fulltime employees and about 200 scientists. The main research topics are atmospheric modelling, global change, space research and remote sensing techniques and applications. Global change research includes development of climate scenarios, research on impacts of climate change, analysis of observed climate variations and trends, stratospheric ozone research, measurements of trace gases and particulate compounds in the atmosphere, and modelling of their fluxes.
The Climate Research group at FMI has recently constructed up-to-date sets of climate change scenarios at various scales in collaboration with the Finnish Environmental Institute (SYKE). International activities include participation to EU and Nordic projects (e.g., PRUDENCE), and contributions to the IPCC work. The main task of the research team in ALARM is, in cooperation with SYKE, to provide the other participants of the project with the most relevant climate scenario data.
