Today’s World is being monitored constantly by a global system of weather satellites that can predict our weather days in advance. This is made possible through a partnership between Eurmetsat, the organization that owns and runs Europe’s system of high precision weather watching machines and ESA, who spearhead their development. In order to provide as much accuracy as possible, Europe’s fleet of satellites observe the Earth 24 hours a day from 2 different orbits. The Geostationary orbiting Meteosat satellites, survey the earth from the same spot above the equator, sending a high resolution image back to earth every 15 minutes and the polar-orbiting Met-op satellites, measure every aspect of the earth’s surface in detail over a 24 period.
