EUMETSAT offers over 35 years of meteorological satellite data. New data consistency with previous satellites is ensured by intercalibration and reprocessing. This is a valuable resource for the geoscience communities. EUMETSAT produces 26% of the Essential Climate Variable records identified by the Global Climate Observing System that can be observed from space.
With the new satellite programmes, the volume and complexity of the data products will increase significantly, making it unfeasible for traditional workflows, relying on accessing local data holdings, to exploit these observations. EUMETSATs new Data Services, the subject of this course, address this issue.
