Use Cases for Climate Monitoring from Space

Building on the architecture for climate monitoring from space and on an initial set of case studies for establishing the architecture, published in 2015, as well as on the ECV Inventory of Climate Data Records, the joint CEOS/CGMS Working Group on Climate together with the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) are soliciting use cases to demonstrate the value of Earth Observation satellites for societal benefit and decision making.

All cases submitted with complete information will be published here, and some selected use cases will also be considered for publication in a WMO special report to illustrate the importance of satellite observations for climate monitoring and climate service. Please consider submitting your use case using the web-based submission form below.
