EUMETSAT is the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment from space. EUMETSAT operates the geostationary satellites Meteosat -10, and -11 over Europe and Africa, and Meteosat-9 over the Indian Ocean. We also operate two Metop polar-orbiting satellites as part of the Initial Joint Polar System (IJPS) shared with the NOAA (US).


The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.


As a specialized agency of the United Nations, World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is dedicated to international cooperation and coordination on the state and behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere, its interaction with the land and oceans, the weather and climate it produces, and the resulting distribution of water resources.


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the international body for assessing the science related to climate change. Created in 1988 by WMO and United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) to provide policymakers with regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation.

Mercator Ocean International

Mercator Ocean International (MOI) is a non-profit organization providing ocean science-based services of general interest focused on the conservation and the sustainable use of the oceans, seas and marine resources. Officially appointed by the European Commission to implement the European ocean-monitoring service, the Copernicus Marine Service (CMEMS), as part of the European Earth observation program, Copernicus.


The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) supports society by providing authoritative information about the past, present and future climate in Europe and the rest of the World. The C3S mission is to support adaptation and mitigation policies of the European Union by providing consistent and authoritative information about climate change. We offer free and open access to climate data and tools based on the best available science.

Climate Central

Climate Central communicates the science of climate change, its effects and solutions to the public, policy makers, TV meteorologists & journalists. An independent not-for-profit group of scientists and communicators, Climate Central uses science, data and technology to generate thousands of compelling local and visual stories around climate change and show what can be done about it.
