Due to three consecutive Copernicus Sentinel-3B planned spacecraft manoeuvres performed on Tuesday 20 November 2018 (UTC times 13:05 to 13:16; 14:46 to 14:58; 16:27 to 16:39) all NRT/NTC SLSTR user products could be degraded or missing from sensing time 2018-11-20 11:52 UTC to 2018-11-20 20:11 UTC.

Users are informed that the Data Hub software will be updated to a new version according to the following schedule:

  • Open Access Hub: Tuesday, 20 November 2018 from 08:30 UTC to 16:00 UTC
  • Copernicus Service Data Hub: Wednesday, 21 November 2018 from 08:30 UTC to 16:00 UTC.
On 21 November 2018, a new Processing Baseline (02.11) will be deployed for Copernicus Sentinel-2 Level-2A products.

Beginning in June 2017 in Indonesia and Malaysia, where development of palm oil plantations is a strong driver of tropical deforestation, the Starling service aims to provide a reliable and near real-time monitoring tool, in order to help companies all across the food supply chain to achieve their 'no deforestation' commitment.

Due to a major issue occurring at Collaborative Groud Segment level on 13 November, Copernicus Sentinel-3A SLSTR NRT data starting from orbit 14269 to 14271 have been missed or delayed (sensing time from 13-11-T10:18 to 15:30 UT).

Copernicus Sentinel-3A SRAL NRT data could be delayed.

Since the 11 of November 2018, the Copernicus S3 Altimetry data products [STC timeliness] are generated with new POE-F standard orbit products.

Sentinel-3A OLCI products are now nominally published on all of the data hub services, and new products will no longer be made available on the Sentinel-3 Pre-Operational Data Hub as of 19 November 2018.

From 13 November 2018, Copernicus Sentinel-3A SRAL Level-1 and Level-2 reprocessed data will start to be available through the Open Data Hub and Copernicus Services Data Hub. The reference time periods for the two user products are:

SRAL reprocessing campaign

12 November 2018

We are pleased to inform you that the Sentinel-3A STM L1 & L2 data set has been reprocessed with the Processing Baseline 2.33 over the time periods:

  • SRAL Level 1: 01 March 2016 09:20:17 UTC – 01 February 2018 00:14:58 UTC
  • SRAL Level 2: 01 March 2016 13:42:43 UTC – 10 April 2018 00:01:56 UTC.

Due to a major issue at the Payload Data Ground Segment on 04 November, Sentinel-3A NRT data related to orbits 14137 to 14139 are missing (sensing time from 02:38 to 07:43). NTC data will be available.
