EUMETSAT – monitoring the weather and climate from space
The European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites is Europe’s operational satellite agency monitoring the weather and climate.
Established in 1986, we are an intergovernmental organisation based in Darmstadt, Germany, currently with 30 Member States and one cooperating state.
We operate a fleet of European meteorological satellites which includes:
The geostationary satellites Meteosat-8, -9, -10 and -11 over Europe and Africa, and Meteosat-7 over the Indian Ocean, providing frequent observations for severe weather warnings.
The polar orbiting Metop satellites which give access to a unique wealth of ocean, land and atmospheric data essential for forecasting of high impact weather up to 10 days in advance.
In the ocean realm, EUMETSAT is a partner in the cooperative ocean altimetry Jason missions involving Europe and the United States (Jason-2, Jason-3 and Jason-CS/Copernicus Sentinel-6).
We also operate the ocean monitoring Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite, in cooperation with ESA, and on behalf of the EU, and deliver marine data services to the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service and users.
EUMETSAT delivers real time, integrated data streams to users worldwide and makes its more than 30-year archive of observations available to scientists, research and operational users.
