Space-based Capabilities (OSCAR/Space)

This section contains details of environmental satellite missions, instruments and other related information. It also provides expert assessments on the relevance of instruments for fulfilling some WMO pre-defined capabilities (see list of mission types) and the measurement of particular physical variables (see See Gap analyses by variable or by type of mission)

The Oscar/Space section is managed by the WMO Space Programme Office. See the WMO Space Programme website for more information.

How to get started with OSCAR/Space ?

  • Using the "Quick Search"
    The "quick search" is present on every page at the right end of the menu bar. Please type e.g. the name of a satellite, instrument or variable. The system will then automatically suggest some items, which you can directly select in the drop down menu.
  • Using the top menu
    From the top menu, you can select the full tables of satellites, instruments, programmes etc. These tables can then be sorted and filtered according to your criteria.

From any page, you can use the hyperlinks to navigate between your items of interest. The quick search and top menu are available from all pages.
