A series of maintenance activities affecting data hubs will be carried out during August and September.
Due to a planned maintenance executed on the Copernicus Sentinel-3A spacecraft on 2 September 2020, SRAL and SLSTR data are impacted in the following UTC sensing time intervals on 2 September:
- SRAL data degradation is expected from 08:24 to 08:58
- SLSTR data degradation is expected from 08:24 to 10:47
California, Oregon and Washington State have been burning for over a month now, leaving most of the western United States under smoke—data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2, -3 and -5P missions are providing a wealth of complementary information, needed to monitor the blazes.
Four years ago, the Slovenian Company Sinergise Ltd triumphed at the 2016 Copernicus Masters Competition with its ground-breaking satellite image web service — the Sentinel Hub. This service revolutionises access to Earth observation satellite imagery, reducing from hours to mere seconds the time required to visualise and exploit data.
A team of researchers in Cyprus have been studying how to use Copernicus Sentinel and Landsat data together, to improve the domain of remote sensing archaeology.

Air pollution is one of the biggest environmental problems of our time. According to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA), air pollution now contributes to one in eight deaths in Europe. Observations from the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite have been vital in tracking the evolution of air pollution, specifically nitrogen dioxide concentrations, across Europe.

Copernicus Sentinel-5P’s high revisit rate combined with GHGSat’s high-resolution commercial imagery can give landfill operators and regulators the information they need to reduce methane emissions from landfill sites.
Researchers from the University of Oslo have applied a technique to extract the detailed flow field of Khumbu icefall in the Nepalese mountains, from a large collection of Copernicus Sentinel-2 data—thus enhancing the capabilities of these data towards a reliable and consistent glacier mapping instrument.
