Due to an issue occurring at Ground Segment level on 27 April 2019, following Near Real Time, Short Time critical and Non Time Critical Copernicus Sentinel-3A data related to orbit 16623 have been missed:
- SLSTR from 20190427T10:54:25 UTC to 20190427T12:34:25 UTC
- SRAL from 20190427T10:53:42 UTC to 20190427T12:34:25 UTC
- OLC from _20190427T10:52:23 UTC to 20190427T11:36:44 UTC.

The Sentinel Hub Custom Script Contest is a remotely run hackathon engaging data scientists, remote sensing scientists, students (from high school to university), and the general public worldwide to produce and share interesting (and new) algorithms to process Earth Observation data.
If you are interested in participating, the contest will end on 5 May 2019, so submit your entry soon.
From 19 April 2019, Copernicus Sentinel-3A SRAL L1 SR_1_SRA_A_ and SR_1_SRA_BS reprocessed data will be available through the Open Data Hub and Copernicus Services Data Hub. These products belong to the same reprocessing campaign of SR_1_SRA and SR_2_LAN, which was published in November 2018.
The Copernicus Sentinel-2B acquisition on 12 April with sensing time between 00:55:08 and 00:56:06 - relevant to orbit 10953 - has been lost due to a collision avoidance manoeuvre executed between 11 April at 23:21:36 and 12 April at 01:20:34 UTC.
The complete drying-up of Lake Aculeo in Chile was captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellite, enabling scientists to follow the water surface extent at high frequency, and thus witness this dramatic loss.

Due to decontamination activities of the Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) instrument on Copernicus Sentinel-3B, SLSTR products will be degraded and/or missing within the sensing time window of 11 to 17 April 2019.

Records show that, on average, global sea level rose by 3.2 mm a year between 1993 and 2018, but hidden within this average is the fact that the rate of rise has been accelerating over the last few years. Taking measurements of the height of the sea surface is essential to monitoring this worrying trend – and the Copernicus Sentinel-6 mission is on the way to being ready to do just this.
- Copernicus Sentinel-3B unavailability
- Infrastructure Maintenance activity extended to 14 October 2021
- Copernicus Data Access Hub unscheduled downtime on 13 October 2021
- Copernicus Sentinel-3 Data Delay on 13 October 2021
- Maintenance activity on the data hub services planned on 13 October from 06:00 to 15:00 UTC
