Climate Data Use Cases
Case studies using EUMETSAT climate data
Data in action for climate applications
26 January 2022
06 July 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.
Climate use cases
Tracking tropical cyclone impacts using altimetry
Satellite altimetry data provides info on tropical cyclones impacts on the coastal oceans.
BAMS State of the Climate 2021
BAMS State of the Climate 2021 finds that major indicators of climate change all broke the records that were set a year ago.
Marine heatwave intensification threatens coral reef health
Using satellite data to show how marine heatwave intensification threatens coral reef health.
Ocean observations from space confirm disruption of Earth's energy balance
Space observations show that the Earth's oceans store massive amounts of heat.
More sunshine in Europe due to cleaner air
How satellite-based climate data records support our understanding of the impact of cleaner air on the Earth's climate.
Antarctic sea ice at a long-term minimum
Antarctic sea ice at the lowest seen during the last 44 years.
Winter drought and fire risk in southern Europe
A significant precipitation deficit over the south-western parts of Europe in January 2022.
2021-22 snow deficit in Italy leads to serious drought
During Winter 2021/22, Italy experienced a markedly dry and warm period, which led to a significantly less snow.
State of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice in 2021
Rising temperatures has led to a marked decrease in the Arctic sea ice area and thickness which could be clearly seen in 2021.
Climate related SAFs
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.
