Due to an issue at network level today - which has now been solved - all Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3 data starting from approximate sensing time 08:00 to 10:00 UTC will be delayed.

A ground segment network incident occurred on 28 June 2019 from 09:25 to 13:15 UTC affecting the dissemination services on the data hubs. The incident was resolved.

The Peneda-Gerês National Park  in northeast Portugal has been home to wild ponies for around 2500 years. Today, it also provides a rich habitat for wolves, foxes, wild boars, ibex, and deer. It also hosts otters, fish, frogs, salamanders, 147 different bird species (many migratory) and 15 bat species. Data from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellites are helping to safeguard this mountainous habitat.

The planned maintenance of the Data Hub infrastructure between 24 and 27 June 2019 has been successfully completed and all services have resumed nominal operation as of today at 08:50 UTC.

On 24 June 2019 the Copernicus Open Access Hub access point suffered from degraded service response times and service interruptions from 01:50 to 02:40 UTC.

Due to a ground segment anomaly, some Copernicus Sentinel-2 L1C/L2A products acquired between 8 and 10 June 2019 are missing ECMWF auxiliary files. Affected products will be removed from all datahubs, and replaced with regenerated products.
With reference to the news published on 10 May, the whole set of Copernicus Sentinel-2 Level-2A products affected by degraded quality between 6 and 9 May, has now been removed and replaced with regenerated products and disseminated to all hubs.
New maps that use information from the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite reveal emissions of nitrogen dioxide along a Siberian natural gas pipeline that connects the Urengoy gas field – the second-largest gas field in the world – with Europe.

Infrastructure maintenance activities on the core infrastructure hosting the data hub service have been scheduled on the following dates:

  • Maintenance 1: 24 June
  • Maintenance 2: 25 June
  • Maintenance 3: 26 June to 27 June.
As reported in the news of 11 June, the Copernicus Sentinel-3 Pre-operational hub will be decommissioned today, 19 June 2019. Copernicus Sentinel-3 production will continue to be available on the Open Access Hub.
