Copernicus Services



The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) provides continuous data and information on the Earth’s atmospheric composition. The service describes the current situation, forecasts the situation a few days ahead, and analyses data records for recent years. It supports many applications in a variety of domains including health, environmental monitoring, renewable energies, meteorology and climatology. For more, see here.


The Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) provides regular and systematic reference information on the physical and biogeochemical state, variability and dynamics of the ocean and marine ecosystems for the global ocean and the European regional seas. The observations and forecasts produced by the service support marine applications targeting safety; marine resources, coastal and marine environment, along with weather, seasonal forecasting and climate. For more, see here.


The Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS) provides geographical information on land cover and its changes, land use, vegetation state, the water cycle and energy variables of the Earth's surface to a broad range of users in Europe and across the world. It supports applications in a variety of domains such as spatial and urban planning, forest and water management, agriculture and food security, nature conservation and restoration, rural development, and others. For more, see here.

Climate change

The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) supports society by providing authoritative information about the past, present and future climate in Europe and the rest of the world. The C3S mission is to support the European Union’s adaptation and mitigation policies by providing consistent and authoritative information about climate change. For more, see here


The Copernicus service for Security applications aims to support European Union policies by providing information in response to Europe’s security challenges. It improves crisis prevention, preparedness and response in three key areas: border surveillance, maritime surveillance, and support to EU External Action. For more, see here.


The Copernicus Emergency Management Service (Copernicus EMS) provides all actors involved in the management of natural disasters, man-made emergency situations, and humanitarian crises with timely and accurate geo-spatial information derived from satellite remote sensing and completed by available in situ or open data sources. The Copernicus EMS consists of a mapping component and an early warning component. For more, see here.
