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.

Warming Europe invites dangerous mosquitos

   As Europe warms up, it will become a more suitable home for one of the world’s most potent virus spreaders – the Asian tiger mosquito. For European Public Health Week 2020, we highlight how the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) used data from the C3S to create a tool that shows how future conditions in Europe will help the tiger mosquito prosper.

New Roles and Fresh Faces at C3S

   As a growing and developing operational service, change is a common constant at the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S)*. 2020 has brought some particularly exciting new roles and people into our team. This month we welcome Samantha Burgess as our new Deputy Director. Over the previous months two other staff members, Chiara Cagnazzo and Francesca Guglielmo, have also joined our team, and one of our existing staff, Joaquín Muñoz Sabater, has taken on a new role.

New Application Facilitates Finding Past Weather Events

   A new application is available in  the Copernicus Climate Change Service's (C3S)* Climate Data Store  (CDS). The Weather Analogues App  offers researchers an efficient way to glean key data about patterns in weather events over time, and demonstrates the success of the CDS as a provider of data and infrastructure for those looking to create climate-focused tools.

C3S team excel in #EUvsVirus hackathon

   A team of scientists and developers from the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S)* joined the #EUvsVirus Hackathon last weekend. In the space of a few intense days, they created a prototype of a toolbox that could, if fully developed with the involvement of health experts, support research into the connections between environmental conditions and the spread and effects of COVID-19.

C3S releases European State of the Climate to reveal how 2019 compares to previous years

   Reliable data are vital for tackling climate change, and one way that we provide them is through our annual European State of the Climate (ESOTC). Today is launch day for our third ESOTC, which describes the climate conditions and events of 2019 in Europe.

The big picture: satellites provide global overview of the climate

   Hundreds of environmental satellites watch over Earth continuously, helping us forecast the weather, track atmospheric changes, monitor the climate and much more. The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) uses satellite observations to produce climate indicators that support investigations into how the climate changes over time.

Copernicus provides vital information to advance COVID-19 research 

   Amid the COVID-19 crisis, there is widespread interest in up-to-date information about the climate and atmosphere. Our services are helping researchers, policymakers and citizens alike with quality-assured data and tools.

C3S helps health experts explore how temperature and humidity affect virus spread

   With each new day, the unprecedented impact of the coronavirus pandemic on Europe’s health and economy becomes more evident, but we are also getting better at coping with this virus as we learn more about its behaviour. Recent research suggests that the spread of the new coronavirus could be affected by temperature and humidity, so C3S has worked with environmental software experts B-Open to develop an application that maps mortalities against temperature and humidity data.

Turning the tide on water management

   Have you noticed an increase in droughts or flooding in your region in recent years? Climate change is linked with extreme weather events becoming more common, which has a huge impact on the water sector.
