Weather
KNMI Weather Research is aimed at improving the quality and efficiency of the weather service in meeting the requirements of our users. An important focus is on more precise severe weather forecasts and providing better severe weather warnings. To this end, KNMI weather research ranges from observations to meteorological processes to models, applying innovative techniques and systems that fit our user needs best.

Climate
The KNMI climate research department is the national research and information centre for climate and climate change. An important driver for our research is to support informed policy decisions on climate change. For this purpose, KNMI conducts observations, develops models and performs fundamental research on the climate system. KNMI is dedicated to the timely provision of its data and other research results to its scientific and non-scientific users.

Seismology
The Seismology Division is the operational knowledge and information centre in The Netherlands for earthquakes and related phenomena. It carries out high-level applied and more fundamental research based on seismological and other observations such as of infrasound. Furthermore, it functions as a European centre for the exchange and coordination of seismological data (ORFEUS). The research focuses on causes, effects and risks of earthquakes in The Netherlands.

Information and observation technology
The information and observation technology research at KNMI focuses on applied research in the fields of surface observations, ground based remote sensing, sensor networks, geo-information, GRID-technology, visualisation and data services. In general the research covers almost all aspects in the chain from sensor (ground- and space based), via algorithms, to data products and their dissemination. Special expertise exists in the fields of fully automated observations satisfying meteorological and climatological criteria, three-dimensional visualisation of model and measurement data, and e-science infrastructures.
