As a consequence of different contingencies at ground segment level, the availability in the Data Hubs of several Sentinel-2 products with sensing time between 30 October morning and 02 November morning is delayed.

An unavoidable maintenance activity on the core infrastructure hosting the data hub service, involving replacement of switches interconnecting the servers to the rolling archive storage, is scheduled from 13:30 UTC on Monday 5 November to 11:00 UTC on 6 November 2018.

Spring floods occur when snow melts over large areas in short time periods, often combined with rain-so-called rain-on-snow events that add water, further intensifying snow melt. As their name suggests, such floods typically occur in spring - except for a few weeks ago, when Southern Norway was struck with this phenomenon.

A routine decontamination activity of the Copernicus Sentinel-2B MSI is planned to take place over a continuous period of 24-hours between 12:00 UTC on 12 November and 12:00 on 13 November (corresponding approximately to the period between absolute orbits 8801 to 8815).

ESA is pleased to inform users of the forthcoming update of Copernicus Sentinel-2 L1C and L2A products featuring an improved data quality.

ESA is proud to announce that on 25 October 2018 we have reached a quota of 10,000,000 Sentinel products published on the Copernicus Open Access Hub.
The Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite has been providing data on carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone since July, and now other polluting nasties such as sulphur dioxide and formaldehyde have joined the list of data products available to monitor the air we breathe.
As part of a scientific collaboration with the Mexican Space Agency and other Mexican scientific public entities, ESA has combined images from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission to produce a detailed view of the different types of vegetation growing across the entire country.

A team of experts from the French institutes IFREMER and CLS recently implemented a strategy with ESA, in order to acquire Sentinel-1 images over tropical cyclones, while developing an algorithm that enables the extraction of hurricane characteristics at a very high resolution from space. Information such as the ocean surface wind field provided at 1 km resolution could trigger perspectives for improving hurricane forecast information.

ESA is pleased to announce the official release of the second set of Sentinel-5P products on the Sentinel-5P Pre-operations Data Hub.
