Caption: MetOp weather satellite in Earth orbit, artwork. The MetOp satellites are a network of weather satellites being developed by EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites) to replace the TIROS network. The first satellite, MetOp-A, was launched on 19 October 2006. The next ones are planned for 2012 and 2017. The instruments include IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer), GOME-2 (Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2), AVHRR/3 (new version of the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer), and MHS (Microwave Humidity Sounder).

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
