Radio Occultation Meteorology (ROM SAF)
The ROM SAF generates and archives high-quality GNSS Radio Occultation (RO) data for NWP
Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs)
Utilising specialist expertise from the Member States, Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) are dedicated centres of excellence for processing satellite data.
Atmospheric Composition monitoring (AC SAF)
The AC SAF processes satellite data on ozone, other trace gases, aerosols and ultraviolet 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.
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 Radio Occultation Meteorology Satellite Application Facility (ROM SAF) leverages radio signals to derive comprehensive profiles of the atmosphere, including temperature, pressure, and humidity.

By processing these signals, the ROM SAF contributes well calibrated, accurate and stable data to serve as input in Numerical Weather Prediction Models in near real time. The consistent processing of radio occultation data from various satellite missions over the last decades enables the generation of climate records of essential characteristics, in particular of the upper atmosphere.
