BARSC member Telespazio VEGA UK has released a first version of a new European climate data hub called the Climate Data Store.

The Climate Data Store (CDS) has been developed as part of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), which is operated by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) on behalf of, and funded by, the European Commission.

It provides a single European point of access to climate data and indicators to help the public and private sector understand past and future impact of climate change across a variety of market sectors. Ground, satellite and model-based information is provided about a wealth of ocean, land and atmospheric Earth system parameters in a standard data format.
