In September 2013 ESA's Directorate of Earth Observation Programmes (D-EOP) opened a Request For Information (RFI) directed at collecting ideas for the implementation of Thematic Exploitation Platforms (TEPs) as part of the evolution of the Earth Observation Ground Segment (GS) operations concept.
The RFI call was closed end November 2013 and the response was far beyond expectation, totalling 48 contributions in which Industry from all ESA Member States were represented.

Satellite observations of global sea-surface temperature show that a 30-year upward trend has slowed down within the last 15 years. Climate scientists say this is not the end of global warming, but the result of a rearrangement in the energy flow of the climate system and, in particular, how the ocean stores heat.
