Understanding and predicting changes within the Earth's atmosphere and oceans requires observations over a very large range of time and spatial scales. Only observations from Earth-orbiting satellites offer such information on the global scale. In view of the importance of predictions of weather and climate to human activities, it is important to examine the progress made in the application of satellite data to weather forecasting, climate prediction and climate model validation. This work presents 22 papers on the topic of application of satellite data to weather forecasting, climate prediction and climate model validation. Four major areas are covered: synoptic scale forecasting, data assimilation and impacts; meoscale applications and use of satellite data in fine mesh models and use of satellite data in nowcasting; climate forecasting support by satellite data and climate diagnostic studies based on satellite data; and satellite data sets and model validation.
