Climate data use cases
Case Studies using EUMETSAT climate data
Data in action for climate applications
04, November 2020
Working with experts, we produced a range of showcases demonstrating how satellite data are used to address a range of climate applications.
If you apply our climate data records, we would be interested to learn about; just contact and you may see your case on our web page. You can also submit a use case to the international community of the CEOS-CGMS Joint Working Group on Climate that is collecting use cases on their web page. All cases will become visible on those web pages.
