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 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.

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 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.

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.
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).

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.

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
A minor evolution of the Sentinel-1 product format is foreseen, impacting the format of the Level-1 and Level-2 operational user products.
Referring to the news of 6 June, we are pleased to inform you that the backlog of Sentinel-2A data dissemination is recovered and all products acquired between 4 and 6 June are now available in the data hubs for download.
