The Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellites are being used by a Portuguese company, together with drones, to improve resource efficiency in agriculture and forestry by early detection of diseases and pests, providing data and tools for precision management of crops.

ESA is pleased to announce the first official release of the Sentinel-3A Synergy Level 2 data products on the S3 Pre Ops Hub.
Users are informed that the availability in the Data Hubs of some Sentinel-2 products with sensing time between 07:24 UTC on 04 October and 10:51 UTC on 05 October is delayed due to a contingency at ground segment level.
A 7.5-magnitude earthquake and tsunami hit Indonesia on 28 September, destroying homes and hundreds of lives. As the death toll continues to rise, the effects of this natural disaster are far-reaching, with hundreds of thousands of people seeking access food, water and shelter in the aftermath of this tragedy.
As of 8 October 2018, a new Processing Baseline (02.09) will be deployed for Sentinel-2 Level-2A products.

Due to a Sentinel-3A minor issue occurred at Payload Data Ground Segment level, Level-2 STC SRAL user products for the following sensing time will be delayed:

  • 2018-09-27T19:15 to 2018-09-27T22:37  
  • 2018-09-28T13:46 to 2018-09-28T23:02
  • 2018-09-29T15:01 to 2018-09-29T22:35.

Due to a Sentinel-3A S09 calibration performed during absolute orbit 13555, all L1 and L2 NRT OLC user products from sensing time 09:03 to 09:05 UTC on 24 September 2018 are missing. The related NTC products will be recovered.

As a consequence of a ground segment anomaly, the availability in the Data Hubs of several Sentinel-2 L1C products with sensing time between 27 September 14:18 UTC and 28 September 07:30 UTC is delayed.

While world-class scientists are meeting in the Azores to discuss how satellites have revealed changes in the height of the sea, ice, inland bodies of water and more, the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellite has new reasons to shine.

Satellite radar altimetry measures the time taken by a radar pulse to travel from the satellite antenna to the surface and back to the satellite receiver. This measurement yields a wealth of information that can be used for a wide range of applications – in particular, for understanding sea-level rise.
