Sentinel satellites observe lignite mine landslide

23 June 2017

Identifying landslides rapidly and precisely enables a better understanding of landslide triggering conditions. The Copernicus Sentinel-1 and -2 missions can be used to provide such information in a timely fashion, and this can help improve maps that show which areas are susceptible to landslides, therefore contributing to risk management.

Sentinel-3A data unavailability

22 June 2017

Due to a SRAL Digital Elevation Mode EEPROM patching operations, SRAL mission data was unavailable during the following period:

22 June 2017 from 08:48:42 to 08:54:08 (Duration 00:05:26).

Sentinel-1A unavailability

22 June 2017

Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 21 June 2017 between 14:09 UTC and 17:35 UTC, due to PDHT anomaly. No data were generated during this period, and the recovery of some data acquired slightly earlier than this period may have been affected.

Great expectations from Sentinel-5 Precursor

22 June 2017

A low Earth-orbiting satellite, the Copernicus Sentinel-5 Precursor (Sentinel-5P) mission is dedicated to monitoring the composition of the atmosphere. Its data will be used largely by the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service. The mission will deliver information to monitor air quality, stratospheric ozone and will also be used for climate variables monitoring, and support European policy-making.

Sentinel-1A unavailability

20 June 2017

Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 16 June 2017 between 09:09 UTC and 12:31 UTC due to a SAR anomaly, and on 17 June 2017 between 11:43 UTC and 14:43 UTC, for a similar anomaly.

Sentinel-3A data unavailability

16 June 2017

Due to a SRAL DEM EEPROM patching operations, SRAL mission data will be unavailable during the following estimated period (the effective unavailability period will be reported after the operation):

  •  on 22 June 2017 from 08:50 UTC to 09:00 UTC.

Temporary unavailability of Sentinel-2A products between 10-12 June 2017

12 June 2017

As a consequence of a Sentinel-2 PDGS anomaly, Sentinel-2A products publication in the data hubs was temporarily interrupted from 10 to 12 June 2017 (from sensing orbit 10267 to 10296).

First Sentinel-2B images delivered by laser

12 June 2017

With the Sentinel-2B satellite close to beginning its working life in orbit, this latest Copernicus satellite has linked up to Alphasat by laser, across almost 36,000 km of space, to deliver images of Earth just moments after they were captured.

Sentinel-3A data unavailability

12 June 2017

Due to a black body crossover testing activity, SLSTR L1 and L2 mission data should be considered degraded during the following period:

  • on 13 June 2017 from 11:05 UTC to 14:07 UTC
  • on 14 June 2017 from 15:36 UTC to 17:50 UTC
