Abstract text EUMETSAT, the European Organisation for Meteorological Satellites, is expanding its scope beyond supporting meteorology, environment and climate monitoring on a global scale, to oceanography. To this end, EUMETSAT operates satellites and data processing systems, including Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facilities, to provide services which are of high value to ocean monitoring and prediction.
Current EUMETSAT programmes, as well as the European Copernicus programme of which EUMETSAT is a delegated entity, provide operational observations of sea and sea ice. The EUMETSAT marine portfolio includes surface temperature, ocean vector winds, sea surface topography, sea ice parameters, ocean colour and other key marine products.
We will review recent innovations in the EUMETSAT stream of marine satellite data, from the Sentinel-3 constellation, the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich mission and the EPS/ASCAT mission. Upcoming and planned evolutions responding to the needs of ocean monitoring and prediction users will be presented.
