Due to two separate Ground Segment anomalies on 24 and 25 February 2018, NRT/NTC/STC Level-1 and Level-2 user data could be degraded or missing.

Due to a SLSTR decontamination and on-board software maintenance activity, SLSTR mission data will be unavailable during the following periods:

  • SLSTR VIS: from 2018-02-15 09:20:00 UTC to 2018-02-19 12:42:00 UTC. Absolute orbits impacted from 10404 (relative orbit 36 of cycle 28) to 10463 (relative orbit 95 of cycle 28)
  • SLSTR IR: from 2018-02-15 09:20:00 UTC to 2018-02-21 21:40:00 UTC. Absolute orbits impacted from 10404 (relative orbit 36 of cycle 28) to 10497 (relative orbit 129 of cycle 28).

The Sentinel-1 satellites of Europe's Copernicus Programme are being used to quantify the surface deformation of the disaster area around the Hualien earthquake.

Referring to the news published on 06 February, users are informed that the ground segment contingency has been solved through specific interventions at the network level and nominal Sentinel-2 product availability has resumed.
The Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) team announces an upcoming webinar on Ocean Colour Monitoring with Sentinel-3.

Due to an OLCI S09 calibration activity performed on 14 February 2018, the instrument user data could be degraded or missing from sensing time 09:49:38 to 09:54:38 UTC on 14 February (absolute orbit 10390, relative orbit 22 of cycle 28).

Due to a Ground Segment anomaly on 15 February 2018, NRT/NTC/STC user data could be degraded or missing.

The S-3A Altimetry Processing Baseline (PB) 2.27 was deployed on 14 February 2018 at the ESA Sentinel-3 Land centres.

Additional information on the PB 2.27 content is available from the S-3A STM product notice:

As previously announced in the news published on 7 February 2018, we are pleased to announce the opening of the Sentinels GNSS RINEX Pre-operational Hub.
