The Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University research in wind and cold climate in Scandinavia, the Department of Mechanics at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) study wind climate over forests and at Luleå Technical University ice formation processes are studied.

Some research topics include:
-How to best estimate the wind of a certain site
-To what confidence level can the future wind climate be predicted
-In what way is the wind climate different in Sweden
-Wind climate in forested regions
-Wind climate in the Baltic sea
-How to best estimate icing
-Measurements of icing
-Modelling of icing
