2 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate), 5-7 March 2014, Darmstadt, Germany Current EUMETSAT satellites METOP-B JASON-2 METEOSAT-10METEOSAT-9 METEOSAT-7 METOP-A (98.7° incl.) EUMETSAT POLAR SYSTEM Kept in its nominal mid-morning sun synchronous orbit at 817km altitude as part of the EUMETSAT Polar System (EPS) JASON-2 (66° incl.) OCEAN SURFACE TOPOGRAPHY Kept in its nominal non- synchronous low Earth orbit at 1,336km altitude, in support of the Ocean Surface Topography Mission. METEOSAT-7 (57.5° EAST) INDIAN OCEAN DATA COVERAGE Operated in support of the Indian Ocean Data Coverage (IODC) mission, bridging an observational gap in this region METEOSAT-8 (3.5° EAST) METEOSAT FULL DISC IMAGERY Back-up Meteosat full disk service over the European continent, Africa and parts of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. (IODC TBD) METEOSAT-9 (9.5° EAST) RAPID SCANNING SERVICE (RSS) Positioned at 9.5° East delivering the Rapid Scanning Service (RSS) over Europe and adjacent seas. METOP-A METEOSAT-8 METOP-B (98.7° incl.) EUMETSAT POLAR SYSTEM Successfully launched into low Earth orbit on 17 September 2012. Same orbital plane as Metop-A, phased 48.92 min. apart. Prime satellite since April 2013. METEOSAT-10 (0°) METEOSAT FULL DISC IMAGERY Prime Meteosat full disc imagery service over the European continent, Africa and parts of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans from 0° longitude.

CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate), 5-7 March 2014, Darmstadt, Germany EUMETSAT Climate Monitoring Activities: How & Who Climate Monitoring Implementation Plan Prioritised Secretariat’s activities Dependence on external funding e.g. From European Union Satellite Application Facility (SAF) on Climate Monitoring & contributions from other SAFs SAF federated activities, reprocessing coordination Activities embedded in/articulated with cooperative projects WMO GSICS and SCOPE-CM projects EU FP-7 Projects: CORE-CLIMAX, ERACLIM 1/2, QA4ECV, ESA CCI
CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate), 5-7 March 2014, Darmstadt, Germany Scope of EUMETSAT Climate Monitoring Activities Re-calibration and cross calibration of historical data (GSICS, SCOPE-CM) Production of Fundamental Climate Data Records; Production of Thematic Climate Data Records (QA4ECV); Delivery to users/projects with documentation, support to scientific validation; Support to international projects (ERA-CLIM 1/2, SCOPE-CM) Development of methods for maturity/quality/capacity assessment (CORE-CLIMAX, QA4ECV) International coordination: WMO, architecture, CEOS-CGMS
