The Finnish Meteorological Institute together with other four European research institutes has constructed a European atlas on the probabilities and occurrence of adverse weather events for transport. Conceivable impacts of global climate change on the occurrence of these events were also studied.

The EWENT project (Extreme Weather impacts on European Networks of Transport) funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (Transport, Horizontal Activities) has the objective of assessing the impact of extreme weather on the European transport system. The work is coordinated by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
