Finnish Regional Emission Scenario model FRES

Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) evaluates air pollution emissions and their impacts on the climate, environment and human health. The evaluations are  supported by so-called integrated assessment models (IAMs)  that describe multiple air pollution emissions, their dispersion in the atmosphere, impacts on the environment and emissions reduction opportunities and costs in a coherent framework.

The most important national level tool is the Finnish Regional Emission Scenario model (FRES), which has been developed in cooperation with the Finnish Meteorological Institute FMI and The National Institute for Health and Welfare THL. The model results are used for both scientific assessment and supporting policy-making. This project page presents FRES research team activities and the main projects as following:
