Euronews and Copernicus Present New Programmes that Make Climate Change and Atmosphere Data More Applicable in Daily Lives

Lyon/Reading  The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service and the Copernicus Climate Change Service, both implemented by ECMWF, have joined forces with Euronews to provide an exclusive daily 24-hour air quality forecast for Europe and a monthly climate update dedicated to the planet’s changing climate.

With the exclusive Air Quality Forecast provided by the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) and broadcast on Euronews, people can now find out about the expected air quality where they live, work or are planning to visit.

 

In view of a recent European environmental report* detailing how poor air quality, particularly in urban areas, has a significant economic impact, increases medical costs and reduces productivity, being able to check the air quality will help people make informed choices about the activities they undertake in the hours ahead.

 

The monthly Climate Update is based on Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) data and will highlight a number of recent events that are related to our planet’s changing climate. Major floods, droughts and wildfires have impacted large parts of Europe.

 

C3S and CAMS are part of Copernicus, the European Commission’s ambitious Earth observation programme, providing environmental data and information services. This data is collected by a series of advanced satellites, called Sentinels, and together with additional data from dozens of other satellites from global organisations and thousands of ground sensors it is processed by the ECMWF and can be downloaded free of charge.
