EUMETSAT is the European satellite agency for monitoring weather and climate. Bringing together the resources of 30 member states, we develop and operate a range of satellite systems surveying the atmosphere, land and ocean that deliver vital data 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our data contribute to weather forecasts that protect lives and property across Europe and to monitoring of our changing climate. From 2016 onwards, EUMETSAT will also operate the Copernicus Sentinel 3,4,5 and 6 missions on behalf of the European Union and provide data and services to the Copernicus marine and atmospheric services and their users.
