JRC launches new EU-wide weather monitoring e-service
The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has launched a new e-service for monitoring weather and crop conditions in near real-time across the whole of the EU, the JRC MARS Explorer. The e-service provides quick access to high-resolution maps and graphs that are updated three times per month. The pre-prepared images display both crop and weather information, and can be downloaded and reused by users in their own reports. Weather information is based on observations from several thousand meteorological stations across Europe, while simulations using a computer model provide information on crops.
