Atmospheric Composition monitoring (AC SAF)
Data on ozone and atmospheric chemistry
Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs)
Utilising specialist expertise from the Member States, Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) are dedicated centres of excellence for processing satellite data.
Land Surface Analysis (LSA SAF)
The LSA SAF exploits remotely-sensed data on land, land-atmosphere interactions and biosphere applications.
Ocean and Sea Ice (OSI SAF)
The OSI SAF provides comprehensive information on the ocean-atmosphere interface.
Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP SAF)
The NWP SAF supports the interface between satellite data and European activities in NWP.
Radio Occultation Meteorology (ROM SAF)
The ROM SAF generates and archives high-quality GNSS Radio Occultation (RO) data for NWP.
Support to Nowcasting and Very Short Range Forecasting (NWC SAF)
Nowcasting is a weather forecast for the next few hours, based on current information.
The Atmospheric Composition Monitoring Satellite Application Facility (AC SAF) is devoted to monitoring the Earth's atmospheric composition, including trace gases, ozone, and ultraviolet radiation.
