Europe's upcoming Sentinel-2 mission has reached a significant milestone on its road to delivering high-resolution optical images for monitoring our changing land. Seven years in the making, the state-of-the art imager is ready to join the first satellite.

Although not yet operational, the new Sentinel-1A satellite has provided radar data for mapping the floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The first mission dedicated to monitoring global air quality for Europe's Copernicus programme has passed an important milestone: the Sentinel-5 Precursor satellite platform is complete, ready to meet its Tropomi instrument.

With the first Sentinel satellite already in orbit, scientists and users gathered in Italy last week to discuss the progress of the upcoming Sentinel-2 mission and its many applications.

The financial benefits of the Copernicus programme, as well as opportunities for sustainable economic growth and job creation in Europe, came into focus recently in Athens, Greece.

Just weeks after the launch of Sentinel-1A, ESA and Greece have signed a first arrangement that establishes access to Sentinel data, marking a significant step forward in their exploitation.

While Sentinel-1A is clearly demonstrating its versatility for monitoring many aspects of Earth, it has already been used for practical purposes. One of the satellite’s first images was crucial in helping Namibian authorities decide how to respond to a serious flood.

ESA is pleased to announce the availability of the Sentinel-1A real products, ready for download from the Sentinel Data Hub.

Melting at one of the largest ice caps on Earth has produced a big jump in its flow speed, satellite imagery suggests.

From climate change monitoring to supporting humanitarian aid and crisis situations, early data applications from the month-old Sentinel-1A satellite show how the radar mission's critical observations can be used to keep us and our planet safe.
