Calling on all interested users of Sentinel data, who would like to submit their results, turning their experiences into 'success stories'.

If you have a good story to tell, of how any of the Sentinel satellites are producing data that bring benefit to your work and/or to society, please contact the Sentinel Online Editor Malì Cecere at: mali.cecere@ejr-quartz.com with your proposals.


Minimize Sentinel Success Stories

Meet an expert oceanographer

05 May 2017

Dr Marie-Hélène Rio is a scientist from CLS, a subsidiary of the French Space agency CNES. She is responsible for developing and merging new algorithms to exploit Sentinel-3 data.

Sentinels detect and monitor forest fires

28 April 2017

Images from Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 have been combined to reveal that 36,000 ha of forest has burnt in the Republic of Congo in Africa.

Meet the Sentinel-3 Data Quality Manager

20 April 2017

Steffen Dransfeld is in charge of the quality of the data from the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) and Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) instruments on Sentinel-3.

Sentinel-3 is part of the family of EU-owned satellites that are developed and operated in the context of Copernicus, the largest environmental monitoring programme in the world.

Earthquake analysis benefits from Sentinel complementarity

13 April 2017

Satellites carrying synthetic aperture radar, in particular the European Union's Copernicus Sentinel-1 constellation, have become the standard instruments to measure coseismic displacements over large areas, critically contributing to improving our understanding of earthquakes. Together with high-resolution images from the Sentinel-2 mission on effects caused by earthquakes, such as landslides, floods, surface ruptures and other surface changes, the two missions offer unique possibilities to monitor disasters.

Sentinel-1 supports detection of illegal oil spills

07 April 2017

Oil spills, such as those from the Erika (1999) and the Prestige (2002) tankers, result in huge environmental and economic damage to our coastlines.

Meet the head of the Sentinel data quality managers

30 March 2017

Today we are interviewing ESA's Philippe Goryl, who is responsible for leading the data quality managers of the various Sentinel missions.

Sentinels accelerate monitoring of forest change

21 March 2017

Celebrated today, the International Day of Forests raises awareness on the importance of forests globally. Some 30% of Earth's land surface is covered by forests. Every minute, an area of forest equal to ten football fields is lost (FAO FRA 2015).

Sentinel-3 Validation Team forge ahead with satellite data

16 March 2017

Feedback from the Sentinel-3 Validation Team meeting provided essential information to ESA and EUMETSAT to progress with the evolution and improvement of Sentinel-3's core data products.

Sentinel-1 lends a hand in Poland's wetlands

23 February 2017

Poland's Biebrza National Park, protected by the Wetlands Convention, experiences certain disturbances in its water levels and water transfer, which could threaten its biodiversity.

Sentinel-1 data improve iceberg detection

16 February 2017

The Copernicus Sentinel-1A and -1B satellites have increased the number and quality of detections of icebergs in the waters around Greenland.

Meet the Sentinel-2 Data Quality Manager

09 February 2017

Today we are interviewing ESA's Dr Ferran Gascon who is responsible for the quality of the data from the Sentinel-2 mission.

Sentinels and Earth Explorer join forces

26 January 2017

ESA's Fluorescence Explorer (FLEX) mission will orbit in tandem with one of the Copernicus constellation satellites. Taking advantage of Sentinel-3's optical and thermal sensors will lead to an integrated package of measurements to assess plant health. With the Sentinel-2 satellites also in orbit, there is a unique opportunity of using this data synergistically from all three missions for vegetation studies.

Meet the Sentinel-1 Data Quality Manager

19 January 2017

Today we are interviewing ESA's Dr Nuno Miranda, who is responsible for the quality of the data from the Sentinel-1 mission.

The evolution of the Sentinel Collaborative Ground Segment

12 January 2017

The Sentinel Collaborative Ground Segment initiative was introduced in 2011 by ESA and its Member States, to foster the Sentinel data exploitation in Europe .

Sentinel-2 sets new standards for land monitoring

15 December 2016

The Sentinel-2 satellite of the Copernicus Programme is proving to benefit land and urban monitoring, with its high resolution and repetitive coverage.

Sentinels down under

09 December 2016

The European Union's Sentinel satellites, developed and operated by ESA, will play a critical role in Australia's efforts to manage its vast land and marine environment.

Sentinel-1 spots avalanches in Svalbard

01 December 2016

Researchers from the University of Oslo processed and analysed data from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellite, which spotted an unusual number of recent avalanches in Svalbard.

Sentinel-3 data benefit users

24 November 2016

On 20 October 2016, the first operational data from the Copernicus Sentinel-3's Ocean and Land Colour Instrument were made available to users worldwide.

Copernicus Sentinel-1 data advance sea-ice monitoring

10 November 2016

Sea ice is a rapidly changing phenomenon. Timely measurements over large areas, at high spatial and temporal resolutions, are fundamental for its surveillance.

Sentinels-2 and -3 shine in Brussels

28 October 2016

The Copernicus Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 satellites were recently presented to potential data users and science experts in Belgium.
