Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service
The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), operational since January 2015, provides continuous data and information on atmospheric composition by monitoring and forecasting constituents such as greenhouse gases, reactive gases, ozone and aerosols. The service also provides near-real-time analysis and 4-day forecasts, as well as re-analysis of the European air quality. The monitoring and re-analysis of greenhouse gases and aerosols contribute to climate change studies by describing climate forcing. Thanks to daily analysis and forecasts of UV and stratospheric ozone, the service supports public health policies. The products delivered by the CAMS service are provided free of charge through the atmosphere.copernicus.eu webportal.
As part of the delegation agreement with the European Union, ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecast) is managing the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service.
