Data provided by WEkEO
Copernicus is the European Union's Earth observation programme, looking at our planet and its environment to monitor the Earth health and offers information services from global data from satellites and ground-based, airborne, and seaborne measurement systems (more about Copernicus).
Its activities are made available and shared with users through six thematic streams of Copernicus services, of which the following five provide the data also distributed in WEkEO:
Atmosphere (CAMS): global atmospheric composition
Climate Change (C3S): monitoring the climate change
Emergency (CEMS): management of natural disasters, emergency situations and humanitarian crises
Land (CLMS): land cover and vegetation
Marine (CMEMS): marine safety and resources
Security: information in response to Europe’s security challenges, as crisis prevention, both border and marine surveillance and support to EU External Action
Copernicus Sentinel missions
Sentinel-1: imaging radar mission (SAR instrument) providing continuous all-weather, day-and-night imagery at C-band, used for imaging landmasses and coastal zones
Sentinel-2: multi-spectral imaging mission, supporting CLMS studies, mostly in the monitoring of vegetation, soil, water cover, inland waters and coastal areas
OLCI: optical instrument used to screen the ocean and land surface to harvest information related to biology
SLSTR: temperature radiometer to provide global and regional Sea and Land Surface Temperature
Altimetry: topography mission to study the ocean topography and measure the sea surface height, wave height and speed of surface winds
Sentinel-6: latest radar altimetry reference mission for sea-surface height measurements
WEkEO DIAS also offers the possibility to use and archive datasets not coming from Copernicus Satellites and services.
Using the Advanced offer, users can take advantage to the WEkEO infrastructure available to store and manage external data.
