Next week an Arctic Meteorology Week will begin at Levi, said a press release issued by the Finnish Meteorological Institute.

Meteorological themes of the Arctic region will be a focus at the Arctic Meteorology Summit on 20 March. The entire week will bring together a wide spectrum of influential figures in the field of meteorology.

Cooperation is important because research and security in the Arctic region require comprehensive and long-term weather, ice, sea, and atmospheric observations and modelling.

"Meteorology is a new theme in the Arctic Council, even though the Arctic countries are already engaging in plenty of cooperation on the subject.  The Levi meeting will include discussions on how meteorological know-how will be seen in the future work of the Arctic Council", said Arctic Ambassador Aleksi Härkönen.
