History of EUMETSAT

In this history, freely accessible to read with EUMETSAT's consent by clicking here, I explore the emergence of the IGO from the European Space Agency, and EUMETSAT's adoption of climate monitoring from space within a rewritten international convention. Establishing facilities around Europe was critical to the political strength of the IGO. This is an official history, and EUMETSAT listed those programmes it wished covered.

Based on primary written sources, mostly not then in the public domain, and on interviews with leaders in the field around Europe. Helen Gavaghan.

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION
The shortest wavelengths are gamma rays. The longest are radio waves, ranging from 100s to 10-thousand centimetres from peak to peak. The distance between peaks of gamma rays are billionths/millionths of centimetres. Between the two extremes lie X-rays, ultra violet, visible, infrared and microwaves.
