The following set of Sentinel-2B products published in Data Hubs have an incorrect file name due to a configuration issue at ground segment level.

The Sentinel-2A Optical Communication Payload (OCP) is back to nominal operations from 24 September 2018 at 18:04 UTC.

Sentinel-3A OLCI data has been re-processed to Processing Baseline 2.23 to provide a homogeneous time series from the start of the Sentinel-3 mission and also to align it with the forthcoming Sentinel-3B OLCI products.

Spotlight on sea-level rise

26 September 2018

Scientists are gathering in the Azores this week to share findings on how satellite has revealed changes in the height of the sea, ice, inland bodies of water and more. Of concern to all is the fact that global sea level has not only been rising steadily over the last 25 years, but recently it is rising at a much faster rate.
Collision avoidance manoeuvres were executed on Sentinel-1A to reduce the risk of collision with a debris, potentially occurring at 21:49 UTC on 25 September 2018.

Users are informed that a due to a service maintenance on the Sentinel-3 Pre-Operations Data Hub, the service will not be available from 14:00 UTC on 25 September until 09:30 UTC on 26 September.

The Sentinel-2A Optical Communication Payload (OCP) is unavailable since 20 September 2018 00:36 UTC.

Users are informed that a minor update on Sentinel-2 L2A products is going to be implemented to optimise the encoding of the quality bands (SCL, CLD, SNW, PVI, TCI) over 8 bits instead of 16 bits, in line with the Sentinel-2 L1C products.

Infrastructure maintenance activities are scheduled on:

  • Tuesday, 18 September 2018 from 06:00 to 16:30 UTC
  • Wednesday, 19 September 2018 from 06:00 to 16:30 UTC.

Making landfall in the US state of North Carolina on 14 September, Hurricane Florence is causing widespread damage and flooding. The Copernicus Sentinel-1 radar mission is being used to map affected areas.
