International cooperation

International cooperation


International cooperation satellite meteorology

First APT reception from Tiros-5 in Lannion, France, 24 Dec 1962

International cooperation & satellite meteorology

  • 1961:Launch of Tiros-2 with FPR on boardUN Resol.1721 on cooperation in satellite meteorology

  • 1963:WMO establishes World Weather Watch and the GOS Launch of Tiros-5 with APT

  • 66-73: Launch of scanning camera aboard geostationary ATS-1Global Atmospheric Research programme (GARP)Coordination of Geostationary satellites: CGMS

  • 1978: First Global GARP Experiment (FGGE) involves 5 GEOFirst contingency relocation of a satellite (Indian ocean)

  • 79-09:India (79), China (89), Korea (05) joined CGMSSatellite back-up operations in 84, 91, 92, 98, 03

  • 1998: USA & Europe sign Initial Joint Polar System agreement

  • 2006:Response to GCOS by CGMS & CEOS (virtual constellations)

Fifty years of Satellite Meteorology


Coordination group for meteorological satellites cgms

Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites (CGMS)

  • 37 years

  • 12 satellite operators

  • Geostationary constellation of 10-15 satellites

  • 3 polar-orbiting constellations of 2-3 satellites

  • Other missions (altimetry, GPS RO)in transition from R&D to operations

  • Contingency plan

  • Technical standards

  • Intercalibration

  • Products

  • Training
