We provide an evolving range of meteorological and climate monitoring data and products that reflect the needs of the user community.
Operational meteorological and climate monitoring services remain priorities, with development of new environmental services covering the oceans, atmosphere, land and biosphere, as well as natural disasters — where they interact with, or are driven by, meteorology and climate.
Level 1 Data
The Level 0 & Level 1 data from the Meteosat, Metop and NOAA satellites are the building blocks for lower-level processed products generated within the EUMETSAT Application Ground Segment.
The atmospheric information available from our satellites has wider benefits than its contribution to weather forecasting.
The comprehensive aerial coverage of the oceans, provided by satellite monitoring, has a considerable advantage over the isolated point observations possible on the surface by ship or buoy.
Satellite coverage provides information on the state of the land and on land processes.
EUMETSAT offers a range of climate related data products listed in the tables below.
EUMETSAT utilises a variety of formats for product storage and distribution. The most commonly used types are listed below.
Calibration enables the calculation of the actual radiance of the Earth target, from the corresponding digital counts produced by the satellite instrument.
We provide a range of software enabling users to extract information and derive their own products from Meteosat and Metop satellite data.
