Climate Change

Space ConneXions UK acted as project manager for the first two phases of the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project, which was led by the University of Reading. The SST CCI project used ATSR data and AVHRR data to produce the most accurate time series of SST data to date. More information on the current phase of the project, which is extending the time series with SLSTR data, can be found on the ESA SST Climate Change Initiative Project webpage.

Space ConneXions Ireland provides the technical support for the management of ECMWF's Essential Climate Variable (ECV) contracts, which are providing data, including SST CCI products from the University of Reading team, for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) Climate Data Store.
