Abstract

In Europe (EU25) about half a million skin cancer cases are occurring per year and this is strongly associated with personal habits in relation to sun exposure and its UV component. Within the frame of the European GMES-Program (GMES = Global Monitoring for Environment and Security ) the ESA-GSE Project PROMOTE addresses this problem by developing and implementing a UV information service that aims to reach as many as possible citizens of Europe (EU25). The overall PROMOTE UV service contains forecast and monitoring products. The underlying methods, the use of satellite data, the various UV products including related user interfaces, as well as accuracy aspects are described. One central ambition of the PROMOTE project is the close interaction between providers and users. Experiences that have been made and will be made during the different stages of the PROMOTE project contribute significantly to the further up-grading of the services.
