Copernicus is the European Union's Earth observation programme, looking at our planet and its environment to benefit all European citizens. It offers information services that draw from satellite Earth Observation and in-situ (non-space) data.

The European Commission manages the Programme. It is implemented in partnership with the Member States, the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), EU Agencies and Mercator Ocean.

On 13 November 2018, the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), implemented by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on behalf of the European Union, released the latest enhancement of its seasonal forecast component. These seasonal forecasts include data and graphical products for several variables, including air and sea-surface temperature, atmospheric circulation and precipitation, covering a period of six months.

The Copernicus Museum, independent of the Copernicus project, is operated for a promotion of utilization of the Copernicus data by Dr. Mio Matsueda (University of Tsukuba).
Forecast products in the Copernicus Museum are updated every month with a 2-week delay, and are available for non-commercial use.

The TIGGE Museum and The S2S Museum are also open!
