EUMETSAT delivers agreed data and support to our Member States and users worldwide – both from our own and third party programmes.
We provide an evolving range of meteorological and climate monitoring data that reflect the needs of the user community. Operational meteorological and climate monitoring services remain priorities, with additional services covering the oceans, atmospheric composition and land monitoring.
A list of all EUMETSAT and Third Party data can be found in our data catalogue the Product Navigator.
Access our data
Access to the data typically involves an initial registration process — Register for data
Data are made available via various access mechanisms:
Additionally, we have an open view service called EUMETView.
Information on the current status of our geostationary and polar satellites and the data can be found in the Service Status section.
We offer three distinct services from the Metop polar orbiting satellites:
Global Data Service — generated products derived from the global data dumps.
Regional Data Service/EARS — typically North Atlantic and European coverage.
Direct readout — real-time transmission of data, limited to the instantaneous sub-satellite observation.
EUMETSAT provides data, products and support services to the Copernicus information services and user communities, with a focus on marine, atmosphere and climate. This involves delivering Earth observation data services to Copernicus from the Sentinel satellites, our Metop and Meteosat missions, from the ocean-monitoring Jason-2 and Jason-3 satellites, and from missions of its international partners (e.g. USA, China, India and Japan).
We are responsible for operating the Sentinel-3 satellites, with ESA support, and delivering the marine data, and will operate and deliver products from the Sentinel-4 and Sentinel-5 instruments, and the Sentinel-6 satellites; plus delivering data and products from Sentinel missions to third parties around the world.
Climate Data Records for NWP model-based reanalysis, climate system analysis and climate modelling applications.
