Adaptation to a changed climate benefits the forestry sector

Knowledge of climate change affords the forestry sector an opportunity to adapt the planting of pine saplings. Climate change affects the forest’s growing conditions, but with the right knowledge and tools we can adapt the planting of new trees to both existing and future climate conditions.

The coastal zone can reduce eutrophication of the Baltic Sea

The coastal zone is the area where the land meets the sea. A number of nutrients that are carried by the water from the land remain in the coastal zone. Research has now shown that the coastal zone can reduce the eutrophication in the open seas.

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.
