All Copernicus Services provide data and services catering to the needs of various marine and coastal stakeholders in Africa.
Marine Service – marine.copernicus.eu : provide free access to global observation products (in situ and satellite) and modeling data for the physical ocean (waves, sea level, currents, temperature, salinity….), the biogeochemical ocean (nutrients, chlorophyll, plankton, ocean colour…) for the global ocean. Regular dedicated trainings and e-learning materials are provided for users of ocean and coastal data working in Africa (See training and learning materials on #Marinedata4Africa event held in Dec 2021 and the #OceanChallenge4Africa Hackathon April 2022)
Climate Change Service – climate.copernicus.eu : provides free data and information about the past, present and future climate, as well as tools to enable climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies by policy makers and businesses worldwide. The Service distributes ocean climate products from two sources: satellite observations and numerical model reanalysis or seasonal forecast. Visit the climate data store – climate.copernicus.eu/climate-data-store
DIAS WEkEO platform – www.wekeo.eu provides access to all Copernicus datasets (including data from EUMETSAT and Copernicus Marine Service) and cloud-based processing environment.
Land Monitoring Service – land.copernicus.eu : provides a series of bio-geophysical products on the status and evolution of the land surface at global scale at mid and low spatial resolution. The products are used to monitor the vegetation, the water cycle, the energy budget and the terrestrial cryosphere.
Emergency Service – emergency.copernicus.eu: supports all actors involved in the management of natural or manmade disasters by providing geospatial data and images for informed decision making. To access data on mapping, flooding, droughts, wildfires and drought, click here.
