  • Copernicus Climate Change Service

Operations phase

The Copernicus Climate Change service responds to environmental and societal challenges associated with human-induced climate changes. 

The service will give access to information for monitoring and predicting climate change and will, therefore, help to support adaptation and mitigation. It benefits from a sustained network of in situ and satellite-based observations, re-analysis of the Earth climate and modelling scenarios, based on a variety of climate projections.

The service will provide access to several climate indicators (e.g. temperature increase, sea level rise, ice sheet melting, warming up of the ocean) and climate indices (e.g. based on records of temperature, precipitation, drought event) for both the identified climate drivers and the expected climate impacts. 

The Copernicus Climate Change service is still in a development phase.

The Copernicus Climate Change service is still in a development phase.

The pre-operational phase of the Copernicus Climate Change service is supported by a series of projects launched under the 2013 FP7 Space call related to climate modelling and observation analyses.

These projects include:

A 30-year re-analysis of carbon fluxes and pools over Europe and the globe, Carbones

Monitoring and assessing regional climate change in high latitudes and the Arctic, Monarch-A

European reanalysis and observations for monitoring, EURO4M

European re-analysis of global climate observations, ERA-CLIM

These projects started in 2010 and will last until 2013/2014. They use the outputs of other projects to meet identified needs in terms of resolution and timeliness, and to provide specific climate change products that are required to meet European needs.
