Addressing water challenges via the Copernicus programme
As the Copernicus programme provides water-related products through all its six services (atmosphere, land, marine, climate change, security, emergency), the H2020 call, 'Copernicus evolution: Mission exploitation concept for WATER', aimed to achieve a more tailored solution. EU-funded Water-ForCE proposes to develop a roadmap for the water component of the Copernicus services. The roadmap will define the way for delivering water cycle-related services (precipitation; soil moisture; lakes, rivers, wetlands extent, water content and water quality; coastal water quality, etc.), summarise technical requirements for future satellite missions, develop higher level biogeochemical products, and foster closer cooperation between remote sensing, in situ and modelling communities to build an optimal water service that provides necessary information to policymakers, managers, researchers and the general public.
