In a collaboration between the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute and the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, Abisko is now a part of the extensive network of SYNOP-stations covering Sweden. The weather station is placed on the Observation hill at the Abisko Scientific Research Station, where the station’s own weather monitoring has been going on since 1913.

The new SYNOP-station measures temperature, precipitation, air pressure, wind, air moisture, sight, and cloud-base height. The radiation sensors are in the process of being upgraded.
