From data to information, from research to applications - the development of operational climate services

Dr Freja Vamborg | Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) | Reading | UK

Abstract: The Copernicus programme is the European Commission’s flagship Earth observation programme following a free and open data policy, with a space-component delivering data from satellite missions, and with a service-component delivering information in six key domains, one of which is climate change. In her presentation, Freja will briefly introduce the Copernicus programme and then focus on the operational service chain of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3s). One part of the presentation on C3S will be dedicated to the proof-of-concept services for different sectors. These demonstrate the use of Copernicus data by intermediaries that aim to provide a downstream information service for different sectors. These proof-of-concepts cover a wide range of different applications, such as using reanalysis data for wind farms or using climate projections to assess the future yield of wine. In the second part of the talk, Freja will demonstrate data is transformed into information products for climate communication and how these products are used by various stakeholders, such as media representatives.
