The Project Team

The SMOS-Nino15 project team consists of representatives from the UK and France. The involved companies are CLS, Met Office and Mercator Océan. The project is led by CLS providing deep experience in supporting observational agencies with Observing System Experiments (OSEs). Met Office and Mercator Océan are two of the main groups in Europe developing global forecast system and are strongly involved in GODAE Ocean View.

The SMOS-Nino15 project is funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) through its Support to Science Element (STSE).
