Due to a network contingency that occurred on 22 October, the nominal production of several Copernicus Sentinel-2A products from sensing orbit 22626 to 22630 and Copernicus Sentinel-2B products from sensing orbit 13718 to 13722 was prevented.

Have you got a great idea for producing new and interesting algorithms, to process Earth Observation data?
18 October 2019
Due to two Copernicus Sentinel-3B collision avoidance manoeuvres executed on 10 October reduced data quality is expected in the following sensing UTC time intervals:
- OLCI and SRAL data and all the related NRT/STC/NTC user products are degraded from 17:37:28 to 17:51:27 and from 19:18: 50 to 19:31:50
- SLSTR data and all the related NRT/STC/NTC user products are degraded from 17:37 to approximately 21:52.
18 October 2019
Due to a Copernicus Sentinel-3A spacecraft manoeuvre performed on 15 October, data degradation is expected for both SRAL and SLSTR instruments.
All the related NRT/STC/NCT user products are degraded from 06:15 to 06:45 UTC.
18 October 2019
Due to a planned Copernicus Sentinel-3B manoeuvre executed on 16 October reduced data quality is expected in the following UTC sensing times:
- SRAL data and all the related NRT/STC/NTC user products are degraded from 06:52 to 07:28 UTC
- SLSTR data and all the related NRT/STC/NTC user products are degraded from 06:52 to 09:15 UTC.

An expansion of the observation scenarios will be available on 20 October for Copernicus Sentinel-2A, and 23 October for Copernicus Sentinel-2B. The following new areas will be included:
- Pacific Islands (e.g. Tuamotu, Austral Islands, Kiribati, Juan Fernandez, Archipelago.)
- Bermuda Island
- Sargasso Sea.
Seasonal wetlands are common in Mediterranean climates. They flood during rainy seasons in autumn and winter and dry-up in summer. Precipitation changes in these areas have profound effects on the dynamics of wetlands, affecting plants and animals that inhabit them. These wetlands can suffer changes in their hydrology, becoming transformed into permanent lakes or completely drying-up—but Copernicus Sentinels are making a difference.

Due to a scheduled maintenance on the Copernicus Sentinel-3B satellite on 26 September all payloads were passivated and no science data were generated during the following time sensing window:
- OLCI: data unavailable from 08:13:21 to 11:19:23 UTC
- SRAL: data unavailable from 08:43:56 to 11:19:55 UTC
- SLSTR: data unavailable from 08:51:16 to 11:20:20 UTC.
A Danish R&D project is developing an automatic sea ice product service, which can meet the increased demands for better and more timely sea ice information, using the extensive amount of free and available data from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites, along with novel machine learning techniques for satellite data fusion and sea-ice information retrieval.
