We've just published our annual "Year of Weather" video for 2019 and once again, many significant weather events took place across the globe.
As part of our "Inside EUMETSAT" series, we sat down to have a chat with Richard Dyer!
On 14:19 on 10 December 2018, the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer on board Metop-C performed its first measurement.
The Atmospheric Spectroscopy Group at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) have been using the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) onboard Metop satellites to identify global ammonia hotspots, and they have kindly shared their findings with us.
EUMETSAT’s polar-orbiting satellite Metop-C is now flying in its final operating orbit, in a tri-star constellation with Metop-A and –B, after a recent series of manoeuvres.
Metop-C is now safely orbiting the Earth after a spectacular and eagerly-awaited launch on 7 November.
After years of hard work and planning, Metop-C was successfully launched from Kourou at 01:47 (CET) Wednesday!
Metop-C is now safely encapsulated inside the fairing atop the Soyuz launcher and waiting on the launch pad in Kourou.
Launching a spacecraft into orbit is something that ignites the public’s imagination.
