Users are kindly informed that the following page providing Sentinel-1 data quality information, processor auxiliary files, quality disclaimers and information on the processor versions: https://qc.sentinel1.eo.esa.int/ is replaced by https://qc.sentinel1.copernicus.eu/

Regarding access to Copernicus Sentinel-1 orbit files and processor auxiliary files, users are kindly invited to note that:

Due to an anomaly that occurred at the satellite and instrument level, the Near Real Time and Non Time Critical Copernicus Sentinel-3A OLC Level 1 and Level 2 products starting from approximate sensing time 00:30:00 UTC on 5 March 2021 will be missed.

On 6 February 2021, a huge windstorm from the Sahara reached large parts of the Alps and Pyrenees, giving the snow and surrounding area a sepia coloured nuance, and creating a Mars-like atmosphere—Copernicus Sentinel-3 caught it in real-time, adding to its ability of supplying aerosol estimates.

Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 2 March 2021 between 05:34 and 11:52 UTC, due to a Payload Data Handling and Transmission (PDHT) sub-system software anomaly.

ESA is pleased to announce that the Copernicus Sentinel-5P Chemistry Transport Model TM5 auxiliary files, the CTMFCT/CTMANA files are now available via the Sentinel-5P Hub.

Due to an issue occurred at PDGS level, the Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3B SLSTR Level 1 and Level2 products starting from around sensing time 24-02-2021T13:00:00 UT to 25-02-2021T09:00 UT will delayed.

Due to a new ground segment anomaly occurred on 22nd February evening and resolved on 23rd February morning, the generation of several Copernicus Sentinel-2A products from sensing orbit 29622 to 29630 and several Copernicus Sentinel-2B products from sensing orbit 20714 to 20722 was prevented.

Users are informed of a ground segment anomaly occurred on 21st February evening and resolved on 22nd February morning impacting the generation of several Copernicus Sentinel-2A products from sensing orbit 29608 to 29619 and several Copernicus Sentinel-2B products from sensing orbit 20701 to 20710.

Due to a ground segment anomaly in processing, the Sentinel-5P SO2 Near Real Time (NRTI) data products from orbits 17345 up to including 17353 on 17th February 2021, have reduced quality.
