Projects within meteorological research

SMHI meteorological research unit is involved in many international and national projects and collaborations. Here you can find a selection of our on-going projects. 

A selection of on-going meteorological research projects: 

AeroFrame and AeroSources: Advancing predictions of atmospheric aerosol formation

Research projects focusing on the formation of secondary aerosol particles from gases provide new tools for describing the formation dynamics.

Automatic cloud analysis - the Nowcasting SAF project

The SMHI meteorological group is involved in the Nowcasting Satellite Application Facilities (NWC SAF) initiated by EUMETSAT. The NWC SAF derive and develop products for nowcasting and very short range forecasting.


BRIGHT: Advancing knowledge and tools for the adaptation of Swedish cities to heat.


The BioDiv-Support research program started in 2019, involving eight partners from five European countries. The research project is in its final phase and this newsletter provides a summary of the results achieved in the project.

Climate studies of clouds, radiation and atmospheric water vapour - Climate Monitoring SAF (CM SAF)

The CM SAF project is generating, evaluating and archiving high-quality cloud products from satellite data. The products allow detailed analyses of cloud conditions and cloud properties, atmospheric radiation (radiation budget components at surface and at top of atmosphere) and the atmospheric …

Indoor transmission of viruses under different ventilation measures

In a research project, SMHI and Gothenburg University cooperates to discover how indoor ventilation affects the transmission of the virus causing the disease Covid-19.

Interplanetary assessment of dust-emission processes using active remote sensing on Earth and Mars

The aim of the project is to evaluate and improve numerical models that can describe dust-emissions in both air quality and climate models using observations.

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) …
