Default The Copernicus Program

Over the past few days I've been exercising my mind by trying to get to
grips with some of the aspects of the Copernicus Program. It describes
itself as

"Copernicus is the European system for monitoring the Earth
and is coordinated and managed by the European Commission"

It's a vast and rambling project that deals with a huge range of
environmental, climate and weather topics.

My main interest is in Copernicus ECMWF and, in particular, the ERA5
reanalysis project. This is the latest in a series of reanalysis
projects carried out by ECMWF over the past 30 years or so. It replaces
ERA-Interim which is now 10 years old.

The ERA5 reanalysis currently extends from 1979 to the present day but
it is planned to extend it back in time to 1950. My interest lies
primarily in winds and waves but there's a myriad of other items
included. Over the seas the ERA5 archive is on a 0.5° x 0.5° lat/lon
grid in 1-hour time-steps over the whole 40 years. The resource is open
to all and is completely free to use. It really is a marvellous
resource. Over land the grid spacing is 0.25° x 0.25°.

The data files are in GRIB format. I use Panoply to display the data
though that did need one of its settings to be tweaked before it would
read the files.

If looking at past weather events is your thing then this is a pretty
good place to start looking.

I think they're delayed to (by about 15 days) but monthly seasonal forecasts are on there too. I've been looking at some of this data to understand efficacy of seasonal forecasts for predicting insurance losses.

A month ago I had a rummage on that site and again yesterday.
A prof at the NOC, Southampton told me they host altimetry data of the
Jason-3 satellite project , because the NOC pays them to hold it apparently.
I'm aware of such data on aviso.altimetry.fr but still cannot find Jason
3 data on the Copernicus site. Perhaps the prof has access to a private
section of it, not realising Joe public cannot access it.
