Background 

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the joint CEOS/CGMS Working Group on Climate have decided to collect and publish use cases of the architecture for climate monitoring from space (see Resolution 51 (Cg-18) Implementation of the Architecture for Climate Monitoring from Space).
 
It is planned to compile a publication of uses case following the example of the publication “Case Studies for Establishing an Architecture for Climate Monitoring from Space” (WMO-No.1162).

You are kindly invited to submit use cases describing operational as well as scientific applications using the form below.

(It is suggested that you pre-prepare your input in a separate document (submission template) and once you have compiled all data complete and submit the form. This could help to avoid/mitigate possible data loss. For technical assistance or support with this form please contact Dr. Guangxin He "ghe@wmo.int".)
