Managing natural resources and biodiversity, observing the state of the oceans, monitoring the chemical composition of our atmosphere: all depend on accurate information delivered in time to make a difference. The European initiative for the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) will provide data to help deal with a range of disparate issues including climate change and border surveillance. Land, sea and atmosphere - each will be observed through GMES, helping to make our lives safer.
