Successful MSG-4 Launch on July 15, 2015

Congratulations to the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) for the successful launch of Meteosat Second Generation 4 (MSG-4) on July 15, 2015 – the last in the MSG series of geostationary satellites. 

According to a EUMETSAT press release, “The Meteosat services from geostationary orbit cover the European and African continents and parts of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The Meteosat satellites also provide a unique observational input to Numerical Weather Prediction models, complementing the primary inputs delivered by the polar-orbiting Metop satellites. The satellites have already accumulated climate data records of more than 35 years.”
