CM SAF Web User Interface

Welcome to the CM SAF Web User Interface

The Web User Interface (WUI) is the link between our users and the CM SAF climate data records, providing an online interface to easily order CM SAF products. At the moment we distribute our products via e-mail attachment (small data amounts only) or from our data distribution server via HTTPS or SFTP.

News and Information

The CM SAF production and Web User Interface remain operational despite the wide-ranging precautions against the Corona virus SARS-Cov-2. However, any required maintenance may be performed somewhat slower than usual. (status 2020-03-26)


Video presentations of WUI available

For all newcomers to this website: There are three short video presentations available giving a brief introduction into the use of the CM SAF Web User Interface: An introducing presentation, a presentation on how to search for products and a presentation on how to order products.

What is the Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring?

EUMETSAT's Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CM SAF) is dedicated to the long-term monitoring of the climate system's state and variability. It generates and archives satellite-derived near-real time climate monitoring products on a continuous basis (EDRs) as well as high-quality, validated, homogeneous and consistent climate data records (TCDRs, FCDRs). CM SAF is a consortium with contributions of several European meteorological services (FMI, KNMI, MeteoSwiss, RMIB, SMHI, Met Office) with Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD, Germany) as the leading entity.

CM SAF provides climate data records of cloud parameters, surface albedo, radiation fluxes at the top of the atmosphere and at the surface, atmospheric temperature and water vapour profiles, vertically integrated water vapour (total, layered integrated), turbulent flux parameters and precipitation at the ocean surface, as well as brightness temperatures.
