Copernicus Sentinel-1B was unavailable on 16 January 2020 from 14:06 UTC to 17:48 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

No data were generated during this period.

Due to a ground segment anomaly in the interface with the auxiliary data source for NPP there is a degradation in the Copernicus Sentinel-5P CH4 non time critical (OFFL) data quality.  

In response to scientific user recommendations, precise orbital products and platform data files computed by the Copernicus POD Service, have been officially released for the Sentinel-3 mission, on the Copernicus Data Hub service.

We are pleased to announce a new forthcoming processing baseline for Copernicus Sentinel-3 "LAND" STM products.

To provide a better monitoring of the Taal volcano eruption in the Philippines, specific Copernicus Sentinel-1 observations are being planned to ensure a 6-day repeat in both ascending and descending passes (relative orbits 142 and 32), using both Copernicus Sentinel-1A and Copernicus Sentinel-1B satellites.

Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 6 January from 14:17 UTC to 17:42 UTC, due to a Payload Data Handling and Transmission (PDHT) sub-system anomaly.

While carbon dioxide is more abundant in the atmosphere and therefore more commonly associated with global warming, methane is around 30 times more potent as a heat-trapping gas. Given its importance, Canadian company GHGSat have worked in collaboration with the Sentinel-5P team at SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research to investigate hotspots of methane emissions during COVID-19.

Some Copernicus Sentinel-2A planned acquisitions have been lost due to a collision avoidance manoeuvre executed on 31 December and 01 January.

An unscheduled service downtime occurred on 30 December 2019 from 09:00 to 13:45 UTC on the Copernicus Data Hubs.

Due to an issue at the Pick-up Point infrastructure level on 30 December, OLC, SLSTR and SRAL Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3 data starting from approximately 08:30 (UTC) sensing time could be delayed.
