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: email@example.com with your proposals.
Sentinel Success Stories
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.

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).
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.

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.
