Copernicus – continuous environmental monitoring

On 13 Septem­ber 2017, the Ger­man gov­ern­ment adopt­ed a na­tion­al Coper­ni­cus strat­e­gy. The Eu­ro­pean Union’s Coper­ni­cus pro­gramme helps to an­swer cli­mate and en­vi­ron­men­tal ques­tions. It pro­vides com­pre­hen­sive in­for­ma­tion on the state of the glob­al en­vi­ron­ment based on satel­lite-based Earth ob­ser­va­tion and sup­ports a wide range of ap­pli­ca­tions from cli­mate mon­i­tor­ing to agri­cul­ture, forestry and dis­as­ter re­lief.
