MetCoOp – a state-of-the-art numerical weather prediction system

MetCoOp is a cooperation between SMHI, MET Norway, the Finnish Meteorological Institute FMI and Estonia Environment Agency ESTEA. The primary goal of the collaboration is to provide a state-of-the-art operational short- and very short-range numerical weather prediction (NWP) system. 

Through a joint NWP production SMHI, MET Norway and FMI shall be a driving force in high resolution short- and very short-range forecasting. 

The joint NWP production should also facilitate closer collaboration between the institutes in other areas of common interest, such as pre- and post-processing software, forecast production tools and operational infrastructure in general.
