Les services Copernicus Atmosphère (CAMS) : une révolution numérique au service de l’environnement

Abstract : After nearly ten years of exploratory research funded through European Commission programs, the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) became operational at the end of 2015: In November 2014, the European Commission placed the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in charge of steering and managing these operational services. CAMS proposes forecasts, maps and data about : the chemical composition of the atmosphere on a global scale, ozone in the stratosphere, ultraviolet radiation and the quality of air in Europe. These services have come out of the research that, conducted by approximately fifty teams in Europe, uses all sorts of tools (digital models) or data (in situ and via satellite) to make analyses and forecasts on different scales of space and time. A new era has opened with the availability of products for free that, with unparalleled quality and exhaustiveness, target users’ needs and focus on topics as sensitive as the ecology of the atmosphere.
