To keep pace with the scientific and technical discoveries that drive weather and climate studies, EUMETSAT hosts scientists from around the world for intensive, short-term collaborations.  EUMETSAT also commissions targeted studies from universities and weather institutes to test or validate ongoing product development. 

In this section, you can find Power Point presentations from visiting scientists as well as research papers presented to EUMETSAT in response to commissioned scientific inquiries. A third category includes internal EUMETSAT research papers not related to specific operational programs.

Also note that presentations from Visiting Scientists can be found on our dedicated Visiting Scientists page.
