Following a contract signed with Arianespace today, the second Sentinel-1 satellite is now set to join its identical twin sister in orbit in early 2016, optimising the mission's global coverage to manage the environment and improve everyday lives.

While engineers have almost finished building the first Sentinel-3 satellite for ocean forecasting and marine safety, a beer cooler has an unusual role in supporting the long-term record of sea-surface temperatures.

Sea-level rise is one of the most threatening consequences of ongoing global warming and is a major indicator of climate change.

New Sentinel-1 sample products have been made available on the Sentinel Data Hub.

While ESA is preparing the procurements from the Copernicus Contributing Missions for the period 2014-2020, the European Commission has decided to use the limited remaining financial resources of the current Data Warehouse Phase (2010-2014) to serve the following users:

  • Copernicus EMS
  • Security projects (G-NEXT, G-SEXTANT, LOBOS, SAGRES) within an individually assigned budget framework

How do measurements from satellites flying above Earth provide essential information on the effects of climate change on our planet? Scientific and political organisations considered the question in London today.

Additional Sentinel-1 sample products have been made available on the Sentinel Data Hub.

Within the framework of its Copernicus missions, ESA is pleased to announce the Sentinel-5 Precursor Calibration and Validation Team Call (S5PVT) that aims to engage leading expertise for the Calibration and Validation of the Sentinel-5 Precursor (S5P) in the mission validation team, providing independent experimental data, analysis and recommendations to critically assess the end-to-end performance of the instrument and its products.

Calling all app developers: register today for the opportunity to spend a week at ESA developing new ideas and concepts for mobile apps using satellite Earth observation data.

As ESA and China mark a decade of cooperation, imagery over China's Poyang lake is testament to the new Sentinel satellite's promise of continued radar data acquisition for a multitude of applications.
