The Copernicus Climate Change Service is designed to respond to changes in the environment and society associated with climate change.

The service will provide information for monitoring and predicting climate change and help to support adaptation and mitigation strategies.

It will provide access to several climate indicators (e.g. temperature increase, sea level rise, ice sheet melting, ocean warming) and climate indices (e.g. based on records of temperature, precipitation, drought events) for both the identified climate drivers and the expected climate impacts.
