The Polar Meteorology and Climatology Group studies meteorology, ice, snow and the oceans in high-latitudes. We belong to the Meteorological Research Unit at the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The objectives of our group are to better understand physical processes and intearctions in the climate system and to further develop methods for weather and climate modelling, including monthly to seasonal forecasting. The research in the group is based on field work in the Arctic and Antarctic, data analyses, and numerical modelling.
