As part of their meteorological cooperation program, FMI is proposing overarching themes that would include monitoring of the Arctic, especially the increased utilization of satellite date in operational activities and services; supporting research that aims to increase an understanding of the Arctic environment; and launching of new service concepts under the framework of the World Meteorological Organization to support Arctic functions and increase safety in the Arctic.
