The Copernicus Sentinel-5P mission has been used to produce global maps of two atmospheric gases responsible for making our world warmer: methane, which is a particularly potent greenhouse gas, and ozone, which is a greenhouse gas and a pollutant in the lower part of the atmosphere. The maps give insight into where these gases are coming from.
Users are informed that the infrastructure incident that caused a degradation of the data access services has been solved as of 03 March 2019 at 01:45 UTC.

ESA is pleased to announce the official release of the Copernicus Sentinel-5P Methane (CH4) and Ozone Tropospheric Column (O3_TCL) Offline products on the Copernicus Sentinel-5P Pre-operations Data Hub. The products are available with CH4 data starting from orbit 5833 and O3_TCL starting from orbit 6059.

A blocking infrastructure incident at one of the data hub centres occurred on 01 March 2019 starting from 13:20 UTC leading to a downtime of a number of dissemination services.

A Sentinel-1B satellite unavailability occurred on 27 February 2019 from 23:21:26 UTC to 28 February 2019 15:13:19  UTC.

With two sensors now in orbit, the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellites could monitor some parts of the world almost daily. This capability could be crucial in monitoring rapidly developing events such as biotic/abiotic stress on crops and provide accurate and timely information from farmers to policy-makers, to develop appropriate mitigation strategies.

The Level 2 Land Surface Temperature data (SL_2_LST) both in Near-Real-Time (NRT) and in Non-Time-Critical (NTC) timeliness of the Copernicus Sentinel-3B Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) instrument and all Synergy data product types (SY_2_SYN, SY_2_VGP, SY_2_VG1, SY_2_V10) are now available on the Sentinel-3 Pre-Operational Hub.

ESA is working on an improvement of the Copernicus Sentinel-1 Wave Mode 2 performance, by optimising the antenna configuration (new antenna gain settings allowing a better SNR).

Copernicus Sentinel-1B was unavailable on 23 February 2019 between 12.00 UTC and 15:07 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

The Copernicus Open Access Hub will be updated to new software versions in the coming weeks. A series of maintenance activities are scheduled on the data services from 26 February to 11 March 2019.
