Consortium partners

KNMI Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut), De Bilt, The Netherlands
KNMI is the national institute for weather, climate research and seismology. It disseminates weather information to the public at large, the government, aviation and the shipping industry in the interest of safety, the economy and a sustainable environment. To gain insight into long-term developments, KNMI conducts research on climate change. Making the knowledge, data and information on hand at KNMI accessible is one core activity.
SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research (Stichting RuimteOnderzoek Nederland), Utrecht & Groningen, The Netherlands
SRON is the national center of expertise for the development and exploitation of satellite instruments in astrophysics and earth system science. It acts as the Dutch national agency for space research and as the national point of contact for ESA programmes. The main activities of the SRON institute are the development and exploitation of satellite instruments in high energy astrophysics, low energy astrophysics and earth system science.
WUR Wageningen University and Research Centre, Wageningen, The Netherlands Wageningen
UR makes extensive use of models and geographical information systems (GIS). These enable to analyse land-use and environmental problems that can occur at a local, regional, national or global scale. Multiple use of space and climate change are important areas of focus in our research. Wageningen UR also fulfils an important role as national coordinator for climate research.
IMAU University of Utrecht - Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht, Utrecht, The Netherlands
The IMAU is an inter-faculty University research institute and is composed of the Meteorology and Physical Oceanography Department of the faculty of Physics and Astronomy and the section Coastal research of the Physical Geography Department of the faculty of Geographical Sciences. The IMAU is the only university research institute combining these fields in the Netherlands, providing also the scientific background and facilities for research education and training of both graduate and undergraduate students.
VU VU University Amsterdam - Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Institute of Earth Sciences focuses its research on the understanding of the Earth as a coupled system with emphasis on interaction within and between the geo-, hydro-, bio-, and atmosphere. The mission of the Institute is to develop a knowledge base for qualitative understanding of the Earth as an integrated dynamic system. The Institute aims to achieve this by creating optimal focus and mass for its research themes.
ESA European Space Agency, Paris (HQ), France
ESA’s Living Planet Programme is comprised of two main components: a science and research element, which includes the Earth Explorer missions, and the Earth Watch element designed to facilitate the delivery of Earth Observation data for the eventual use in operational services. Earth Watch includes the well-established meteorological missions with the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and also new missions focusing on the environment and civil security under GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) a joint initiative between the European Commission and ESA.
