Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) has published “European State of the Climate 2019”, an annual overview of climate trends and weather events, analysed in the context of historical patterns, for a broad range of climate indicators which contributes to the European Commission’s Green Deal and climate action.


“European State of the Climate 2019” is an annual report that provides an essential overview of the past year’s climate, contributing to the long-term perspective and providing a benchmark for future assessments of the environment. The report includes findings related to temperature, precipitation, sea ice, glaciers, vegetation cover, greenhouse gas concentrations and other accurate, relevant and accessible data to enable policymakers, researchers and business leaders to devise evidence-based road maps towards a sustainable future for all.
