SMHI and WMO to increase cooperation on international development

The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) are teaming up to increase their international development cooperation. The two organizations have signed a formal Memorandum of Understanding today that lays the basis for mutual cooperation on weather, water, oceans and climate change in developing countries.

Radars to teach us more about rainy weather

How big is a torrential rainstorm? How quickly is it moving? How is its intensity changing? These are the questions that researchers are trying to answer by processing radar information to find out more about rainfall. Ultimately, this could lead to improved risk assessment in the context of extreme rainfall.

Climate

Climate Indicators

We are probably facing a dramatic change in the earth’s climate, which will affect society in many different ways. There is therefore a need to continuously follow the changes in our climate, so SMHI has produced a number of climate indicators for this purpose. 

Climate Research at the Rossby Centre

The Rossby Centre pursues research on climate processes and the behaviour of the climate system. The principal tools are global and regional climate models developed within the research unit.

Climate Scenarios

The results from SMHI’s climate research at the Rossby Centre are found here. Climate scenarios are presented on maps, as diagrams and as downloadable data.

Marine environment

The sea is often in focus as a resource for society and its people, for recreation and for transportation. A sustainable environment and climate development are prerequisites for a sustainable use of ocean and its resources. SMHI provides the individual, government, researchers and the international community with data, forecasts and scenarios, and current information.
