1 Copernicus Programme of the EU Synergies with WMO, RA VI and EUMETNET ICG WIGOS18 February 2015WMO GenevaDr. Silvo ŽlebirEuropean Commission – DG GROWEuropean Environment Agency
2 EU Contribution to GEOSS ! It is about monitoring the environmentSpecific onjective was also to set up an independent EO infrastructure (satellite constelation)Fullfilling different far-reaching objectives… no secret also bringing new jobs and benefits to economy of the EUStarted cca 10 years ago and evolving very much during this timeEU Contribution to GEOSS !
3 Sustainable Information USERSPolicy makersPrivate, commercialPublicDifferent Needs&&ExamplesFarmingOil SpillsAir qualityFloodSurveillanceIce levelsInformationServicesAtmo-sphereEmer-gencyClimate ChangeLandMarineSecurityIn situ and satellite data NRT or archive…Analyses, modelling and forecastingLand: three components (global, paneuropean and local), number of applications like mapping of biodiversity and ecosystems, urban planning, farming (status of vegetation, monitoring and managing drought, soil water index…)Marine: monitoring, modelling and analyses/forecasting of ocean parameters (waves, currents, salinity, biochemistry, temperature, sea ice etc), monitoring, modelling and forecasting of oil spills etc…Atmosphere: monitoring, modelling and forecasting of chemical composition of the atmosphere: greenhouse gases, reactive gases and pollutants, analysis, modelling and forecasting of pollution etc…Emergency: Mapping in cases of emergency situations (natural or man made disasters, e.g. flooding), activated on request, to help Civil protection and other authorities to act properlyClimate Change: will deal with monitoring, analyses and giving access to different ECVs (essential climate variables) and indices in support to climatre change mitigationa and adaptation. To be operational in 2 years from now… WMO and met community can benefit as well…Security service: Border surveillance, maritime surveillance and support to the EU external actionsSpace InfrastructureIn Situ InfrastructureSustainable Information&OBSERVATION

5 REGULATION (EU) No 377/2014OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCILof 3 April 2014establishing the Copernicus Programmeand repealing Regulation (EU) No 911/2010Objectives of the programmeGovernance of the programmeBudget forSpace component million €Service & In-situ component million €The new Regulation established the Copernicus program and repealled Regulation ((EU) No 911/2010) which set up the European Earth monitoring programme (GMES) and its initial operations (2011 to 2013).Briefly three slides showing that Copenricus is in an important transition now – firm legal base, sustainable funding, data policy

7 Sentinels Copernicus Sentinels Each satellite is technically different to meet the needs of the 6 servicesSentinel 1 – radar imagingAll weather, day/night applicationsSentinel 2 – Optical imagingLand applications: urban, forest, agriculture,..Sentinel 3+6 – Ocean and global land monitoring, high precision ocean altimetrySentinel 4+5 – Atmosphere composition monitoring, from a geostationary (-4) and a polar orbit (-5)
9 Objectives of the data and information policy Promote the use and sharing of Copernicus data and informationSupport the European research, technology and innovation communitiesStrengthen Earth observation markets in Europe, in particular the downstream sector, with a view to enabling growth and job creation !!!GEO Data Policy Compliant !
10 In Situ Meteorological Data Needs of Copernicus Services Atmosphere Serviceair temperature, wind direction, wind speed, precipitation, air pressure, humidity, long wave radiation, shortwave (UV) radiationEmergency Management Serviceprecipitation, air temperature, wind direction, wind speed, humidityLand Monitoring Serviceair temperature, water vapour, global solar radiation, infrared radiation, snowMarine Servicetemperature/global ocean, wind information/global oceanClimate Change Service and Security Service !!Requirements on:coverage, timeliness, metrological characteristics, meta data…Near-real time and/or Archive data (time series)Basic (substantial) data in some processes, ancillary data in others (validation/verification…)
11 In Situ Hydrological Data Needs of Copernicus Services Emergency Management Serviceriver discharges, water levelsMarine Servicewater levelsRequirements on:coverage, timeliness, metrological characteristics, meta data…Near-realtime and/or Archive data (time series)
12 In Situ Hydro-Meteorological Data Needs of Copernicus Services Main data sources / data providers :National (Hydro)Meteorological servicesOther (minority) data providers, e.g.:World Radiation Data CentreGlobal Runoff Data Centre…WRDC under the umbrella of WMO in St. PetersbourgGRDC under the auspices of WMO in Koblenz
13 Copernicus – WMO / EUMETNET Partnership Copernicus to benefit from data provision:WMO - WIGOS, WMO RA VI …EUMETNET - grouping of 31 European National Meteorological ServicesGeneral Agreement in preparation, recognizing:ECOMET, National data licensing policiesWMO Resolution 40, 1995, 'essential' and 'additional' data…WMO & Meteorological Community to benefit from:Copernicus Space Component (Sentinels) andServices:Marine, Atmosphere, Climate Change, Emergency Management…WMO and Met Community benefits- New satellite observationsSome services products are directly useful for the met community, national met services etc.Some national met sercvies are also partners in service providers consortia etc (Split marine center…)- Marine products, Climate change products, emergency and atmosphere…- WMO to cooperate in the Copernicus User Forum… and to explores other waysSYNERGIES AND MUTUAL BENEFITS !
