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

Following months of tests and careful evaluation, the first data on air pollutants from the Copernicus Sentinel-5P satellite have been released. These first maps show a range of trace gases that affect air quality such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone.

Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 06 July 2018 from 11:30 to 13:11 UTC, due to the need to reset the Payload Data Handling and Transmission (PDHT) system. No SAR observations took place during this period. Data acquired a few hours before this period may have been affected as well.
Collision avoidance manoeuvres were executed on Sentinel-1B to reduce the risk of collision with an Iridium 33 fragmentation debris, potentially occurring on 29 June 2018 at 22:22 UTC.
Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 29 June from 16:27 to 18:16 UTC, due to the need to reset the Payload Data Handling and Transmission (PDHT) system. No SAR observations took place during this period. Data acquired a few hours before this period may have been affected as well.
As a consequence of a ground segment anomaly, the availability in the Data Hubs of several Sentinel-2B L1C products with sensing date between 27 June and 29 June is delayed.

The Sentinel-3 SRAL NRT data in the sensing time from 27 June 2018 14:05 UTC to 28 June 2018 06:45 UTC is delayed due to the Sentinel-3A Ground Segment anomaly on 27 June 2018.

The ground segment anomaly has been resolved.

A Data Hub software upgrade activity is foreseen on the Sentinel-3 Pre-Operations Data Hub on 28 June 2018 from 07:00 to 16:00 UTC.

Due to an OLCI instrument anomaly on 21 June 2018, which has now been resolved, products in the following time window are degraded (L0) and missing (L1/L2):

  • 21 June 2018 at 15:23 UTC to 22 June 2018 09:31 UTC

Due to an OLCI instrument anomaly on 21 June 2018, products starting from 15:23 UTC (sensing time) are degraded (L0) or missing (L1/L2). Instrument recovery activity is ongoing.
