About Copernicus

Copernicus is a European system for monitoring the Earth using satellites and in situ sensors. The Earth observation satellites contributing data to Copernicus are split into two groups of missions: the Copernicus Sentinels and the Contributing Missions – find out more.

Data from these sources are then processed and provided to users through a set of six Copernicus services: landmarineatmosphereclimate changeemergency management and security.

The Copernicus programme provides users with free, full and open access to environmental data.
