Paper Abstract

This paper presents a description of the instruments on board the Metop series of satellites. Metop will be the first European operational meteorological satellite to operate in a polar heliosynchronous orbit. From a height of 835 km, Metop will provide a variety of geophysical data that will improve the weather and climate monitoring services in Europe.
