The Finnish research programme on climate change. Progress report

Technical Report:

Abstract

In 1989, the Ministry of Environment set up a committee to analyze our current knowledge on climatic changes and to define research needs related to the issue. The committee concluded its work by proposing that a large-scale multidisciplinary national research programme on climate change should be initiated. The committee defined the principal goals of the Finnish Research Programme on Climate Change (SILMU) as being to increase our knowledge on climate change, its causes, mechanisms and consequences; to strengthen the research on climate change in Finland; to increase the participation of Finnish researchers in international research programmes, and to prepare and disseminate information for policy makers on adaptation and mitigation. The key areas where research is to be directed are defined as: quantification of the greenhouse effect and the magnitude of anticipated climatic changes; assessment of the effects of changing climate on ecosystems, and development of mitigation and adaptation strategies. This volume comprises reports of the research projects included in SILMU. The aim of these reports is to describe the progress made in research during 1990-91, to illustrate the problem setting and lay out of the research work, and to present the results obtained. Due to the fact that most of  More>>

Due to the fact that most of the projects started in June 1990, only preliminary results can be presented at this stage. Future progress in SILMU will be reported periodically, with a final report being produced when the programme ends.}
