A selection of meteorological research projects:
DNICast - Direct Normal Irradiance Nowcasting methods for optimized operation of concentrating solar technologies
The objective of the project is to provide operators of power plants using concentrating solar technologies (CST) with reliable forecasts of the direct normal irradiance (DNI).
MetCoOp – a state-of-the-art numerical weather prediction system
MetCoOp is a cooperation between SMHI, MET Norway and the Finnish Meteorological Institute, FMI. 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.
UERRA - Uncertainties in Ensembles of Regional ReAnalyses
The project objective is to develop and run an ensemble system of regional reanalyses for the climatological time scale. The information content of the datasets and their uncertainties will be assessed in several ways and statistics analysed.
Wind power: Modelling of icing and production losses
Numerical weather prediction models used by SMHI, WeatherTech and Uppsala University will be improved with respect to parametrizations of cloud physics and turbulence.
