WMO is kindly asking for 15-20 minutes of your time to respond to the Satellite User Survey 2016. This Survey is designed to collect up-to-date information on the capabilities and needs of the satellite user community and WMO Members in using satellite data in meteorological, climate, water, and related environmental applications:

Please provide your response by 15 March 2016.

Particular emphasis in this survey is on:

  • Readiness of users to exploit data from the new generation of meteorological and environmental satellites which is being put in service over the next five years
  • User needs for satellite-derived information on soil moisture, lightning, ocean colour, greenhouse gases, and inland water bodies (identified as emerging priorities by many users in a 2012 WMO survey)
  • Challenges that users face in the reception, processing, visualization, and application of satellite data, and related training needs

Your responses will help WMO set priorities and take remedial action to address challenges identified by users, where possible.
