Foundation for future global model usage in Copernicus services

ECMWF will be the operator of the recently established Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) and the Copernicus Climate Change (C3S) by delegation agreement with the EC. The IFS model is used in the CAMS global monitoring and forecasting component, and the ECMWF contribution to the C3S global reanalysis and seasonal forecast production. Further, operational ECMWF model output supports the product chain established by the European Flood Awareness System (EFAS). The development of key components in the future IFS through ESCAPE will benefit and thus strongly impact the user communities spanned by both Copernicus services and EFAS.
