Paper Abstract

EUMETSAT’s mandate comprises the support of operational meteorology and climate monitoring. These goals are pursued with mandatory programmes, in the geostationary and sun-synchronous polar orbits. In the frame of optional programmes further tasks like altimetry and oceanography are supported. In the frame of third party programmes, EUMETSAT provides data from other agencies’ satellites to the user community. This paper provides an overview over the current and future geostationary and polar systems, as well as on third party and Oceanography missions. This includes an overview on the Meteosat Third Generation and EPS Second Generation programmes and also the Oceanography missions related to Jason and Copernicus. Finally related services are addressed.
