Project title

MACC (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate Interim Implementation)

Overview

MACC II  is designed to meet the requirements that have been expressed for prototype operational GMES services for the atmospheric domain. From late-2011 MACC II will continue the operation and development of the GMES service lines established by the MACC project and prepare for its transition in 2014 to become the atmospheric monitoring component of GMES Operations.

Description

MACC will deliver operational products and information that support the establishment and implementation of European policy and wider international programmes.

It will acquire and assimilate observational data to provide sustained real-time and retrospective global monitoring of

  • greenhouse gases,
  • aerosols and
  • reactive gases such as tropospheric ozone and nitrogen dioxide.

It will provide

  • daily global forecasts of atmospheric composition,
  • detailed air-quality forecasts and
  • assessments for Europe, and key information on long range transport of atmospheric pollutants.

It will provide comprehensive web-based graphical products and gridded data on which downstream services may be based. Feedback will be given to space agencies and providers of in-situ data on the quality of their data and on future observational requirements.
