The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has undertaken the 2012 WMO Survey on the Use of Satellite Data to collect information on the availability and use of satellite data and products by users globally, and to identify any areas for improvement and remedial action. This is part of the work programme of the WMO Commission for Basic Systems Expert Team on Satellite Utilization and Products (ET-SUP).1 The total number of valid responses received was 227 (originating from 95 WMO Member countries2 ) of which 127 (56%) were provided by National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS), 31 (14%) from other operational governmental institutions, and 60 (26%) from institutions with a research/academic mandate. From the majority of responding Member countries, multiple responses were provided. Target audience of the survey were users in NMHSs of the 1893 WMO Member states and territories, as well as other satellite users worldwide (organizations, value-adders, individuals) active in the fields of meteorology, climate, hydrology, disaster risk reduction and related environmental applications.
