In focus

   The European State of the Climate 2019, an essential snapshot of the region and a useful benchmark for future assessments of the environment.

     It was warm and dry across much of Europe in April. It was 1.3 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial average, making it the joint warmest April on record, together with April 2016.
     In this episode we explore whether climate change is increasing the risk of certain diseases for Europeans.

The people behind the European State of the Climate – part 1 of 3
       Climate change affects all of us, so detailed understanding of the impacts of our planet’s increasing temperatures is vital. This is why the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S*) publishes the European State of the Climate (ESOTC), an annual overview of climate trends and weather events, analysed in the context of historical patterns and for a broad range of climate indicators.
       The findings are based on data and expertise from across the C3S community, as well as other Copernicus services and external partners. Below, we hear from Gerard van der Schrier, who works for one of these partners, about his role in the ESOTC.

Observing ice and fire: CAMS and C3S prepare to monitor Arctic wildfires
       As we move into the 2020 Boreal and Arctic wildfire season in the Northern Hemisphere, parts of the Arctic Circle have been more than ten degrees warmer than usual over the last couple of weeks. Higher-than-average temperatures during recent months may contribute to a higher number of more intense fires in the region. Observations and forecasts from CAMS and C3S are essential for identifying potential hotspots, evaluating why particular fires broke out, and managing the effects of these fires.

Boosting biodiversity to protect Earth’s ecosystems 
       Communities across the globe are feeling the effects of climate change. Increased risk of flooding, shifts in weather patterns, melting sea ice and more frequent and intense heatwaves are just a few examples. But climate change affects all lifeforms on Earth, not just humans.
