EUMETSAT operates a large multi-mission Archive called the EUMETSAT Data Centre, which is an integral part of the Ground Segment at the organisation’s headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. The EUMETSAT Data Centre guarantees the long-term preservation of data and products derived from EUMETSAT’s meteorological satellites, and provides users with the capabilities of browsing, automated ordering and retrieval of the catalogued products contained in the Data Centre.
Data Centre usage has exponentially grown in the last years and further growth in size as well as user retrievals is expected due to the availability of data from future geostationary satellite missions such as MSG-3 and MSG-4, the MTG Satellite series as well as the future polar orbiting missions such as GMES Sentinel-3 and the EPS follow-on missions. This growth demonstrates the importance of the historic meteorological data needed for research, modelling, reanalysis and climate studies.
