Our project

Our project

Making existing Nordic-Arctic research and snow data from observations and models visible for the researcher, data user and education communities.

 Support the snow-related research and development of applications by exchange of information and data, arranging workshops, training and supporting also informal Nordic researcher contacts and meetings during the project years.

Latest News and events

  • Pan European High Resolution Snow & Ice Monitoring Product Launch event

    Copernicus Land Monitoring Service is inviting you to the Pan European High Resolution Snow & Ice Monitoring Product Launch event. At this event you will be informed about the products specification, learn about some tangible use cases as well as how to access the HR S&I products.

    The event is open to everybody who is interested in this topic, but in particular it will add value to those who are considering using our data, be it for research applications, downstream services, or national and regional authorities.

    The HR S&I products address a wide range of applications, but in particular they address applications in nivology, hydrology (e.g., flood and hydro-power), climatology, meteorology, and winter tourism and the transport sector. Since several applications are time critical, HR S&I was developed as near real time service, providing its products within 6 h after sensing. The high spatial resolution shall open a new set of applications and possibilities from very detailed local scales, up to the pan the European level.

    The event will be held online. Registration is available until 10.09.2021 at https://www.lyyti.fi/reg/HRSI-launch.
