The Dutch national research and information centre for meteorology, climate and seismology.
The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) is the Dutch national weather service. Primary tasks of KNMI are weather forecasting, and monitoring of weather, climate, air quality and seismic activity. KNMI is also the national research and information centre for meteorology, climate, air quality, and seismology. KNMI focuses on monitoring and warning for risks with an atmospheric or seismic origin. In addition, KNMI offers advice and strategy prospects for both acute and future dangers. In order to improve future advice and therefore reach risk reduction, we actively seek to learn from past events. We do this together with our environment: the general public, authorities and (weather) businesses. We continuously innovate our service and thereby create (sustainable) economic opportunities for business, while we contribute to keeping the Netherlands safe, accessible and habitable.
