EUMETSAT is the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment.
Our satellites orbit the Earth at the same speed as the Earth rotates, thus observing systematically the same part of the Earth.
As an operational agency, EUMETSAT needs to plan and develop the future satellite systems.
Observations of EUMETSAT satellites are critical inputs to monitoring and forecasts of air quality, which are increasingly important for the health of European citizens.
Accurate weather predictions start from the best possible knowledge of the initial state of the Earth's atmosphere.
EUMETSAT supports the development of operational oceanography through the delivery of ocean data.

This data is supplied to the National Meteorological Services of the organisation's Member and Cooperating States in Europe, as well as other users worldwide.
The service provided by EUMETSAT helps to enhance and safeguard the daily lives of European citizens. They aid meteorologists in identifying and monitoring the development of potentially dangerous weather situations and in issuing timely forecasts and warnings to emergency services and local authorities, helping to mitigate the effects of severe weather and protecting human life and property.
This information is also critical to the safety of air travel, shipping and road traffic, and to the daily business of farming, construction and many other industries.
