Climate impact and
extreme weather events
Weather and climate services rely on data from systematic in-situ and remote observations. Such observations are fundamental to understand the current state of the global to local weather and climate, as well as expected future changes. EO technologies provide an unprecedented amount of data and measurements that confirm the effects of the climate change and global warming like an increasing number of extreme climate events such as hurricanes, typhoons, heatwaves, drought and floods.
MEEO has a long and consolidated tradition in providing Earth Observation (EO) climate data services to inform and facilitate climate resilient development around the globe. EO data enables global climate research by providing timely and accurate information in large quantities about the Earth’s atmosphere, landmasses, and oceans. This exceptional amount of climate data paves the way for an intensive and massive usage of artificial intelligence techniques to improve the quality of weather forecast.
MEEO is proud to be part of the Consortium in charge of implementing the DestinE Core Service Platform (DESP) of the European Space Agency. The European initiative Destination Earth aims to create a “digital twin” of the...
