Marking a halfway reporting milestone, on 14 September 2022 EURAMET published its MetEOC-4 Publishable Summary that highlights significant recent progress made toward the long-term objective of the MetEOC series: development of an SI-traceable climate observation system. As with preceding projects in this series, MetEOC-4 encompasses a diverse range of research activities, structured according to four… Read More


The European Union’s Earth Observation program, Copernicus, provides accurate, timely and easily accessible information regarding our planet and its environment. A key component of the program is the Sentinel family of satellites, developed by the European Space Agency (ESA). There are currently five missions in orbit comprising of 8 Sentinel satellites, which have objectives ranging… Read More


One of the goals of MetEOC-3 is to provide  traceability for estimating terrestrial biophysical Essential Climate Variable (ECV) products through in situ, airborne and satellite measurements. Satellite-derived ECV products and the algorithms they use depend on empirical in situ measurements collected on the ground, which requires long term monitoring at field sites. However, ground data… Read More
