Due to a ground station issue, which occurred on 26 May 2019, Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3A data related to orbit #17040 are missing.

Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable from 24 May 2019 at 17:37 UTC to 25 May 2019 at 12:34 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

Due to a Copernicus Sentinel-3A SLSTR instrument decontamination activity all the SLSTR user products will be degraded or missing in the following UTC sensing time intervals:

  • IR channels will be unavailable from 2019/05/20 12:35 UTC to approximately 2019/05/27 06:00 UTC
  • VIS Channels will be unavailable from 2019/05/20 12:35 UTC to 2019/05/24 09:15 UTC
  • During the Cooldown phase from 2019/05/24 09:15 UTC to 2019/05/27 06:00 UTC all the channels will be degraded.
Users are informed about a service maintenance on Copernicus Sentinel-5P Pre-Ops Data Hub on 20 May from 08:00 to 14:00 UTC.

The monitoring of land subsidence is of vital importance for low-lying countries, but also areas which are prone to peculiar ground instability.

Do you have a success story that you'd like to share, about how data from the Copernicus Sentinels are benefitting your work or society?

If so, please share your experiences and results with us, which we may be able to publish as an article or an interview on our website.

Due to an issue at Ground Segment  level on 11 May, following Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3B data have been missed:

  • OLC  from 2019-05-11T10:49:03 UTC to 2019-05-11T11:33:28 UTC
  • SLSTR from 2019-05-11T105133 UTCto 2019-05-11T123218 UTC
  • SRAL from 2019-05-11T105133 UTCto 2019-05-11T123218 UTC.

Due to a ground segment anomaly, Copernicus Sentinel-2 Level-2A products with sensing time between 00:46:48 UTC on 6 May and 10:06:28 UTC on 9 May are affected by degraded quality on the image radiometry.

A routine decontamination activity of the Copernicus Sentinel-2B MSI is planned to take place over a continuous period of 24-hours between 20 May 2019 12:00 and 21 May 2019 12:00 UTC (corresponding approximately to the period between absolute orbits 11503 to 11517).

Remote sensing and satellite imagery have become common use in monitoring and modelling of various biological and physical characteristics of Earth - now Copernicus Sentinel-1 is giving a new approach for monitoring the evolution of shorelines.
