Collision avoidance manoeuvres are being executed on Copernicus Sentinel-1B to reduce the risk of collision with an unknown object, potentially occurring at 10:20 UTC on 11 May.

The Sentinel-5P mission of the European Union's Copernicus Programme has become a game-changer for monitoring our atmosphere while being one of the most important sources of data for the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service.

Following the planned ground segment maintenance executed on 4 May which was announced on 29 April, there has been a contingency occurred on a component under upgrade preventing the resumption of the Copernicus Sentinel-2 Long Term Archive service. For the time being the issue is being resolved and the service is planned to be back in operations by tomorrow.  

We apologize again for the inconvenience caused.

Maintenance activities of the main storage facilities on the Data Hubs are scheduled from Monday, 18 May 2020 at 14:00 UTC to Tuesday, 19 May 2020 at 14:00 UTC.

Climate Change and human activity will have an increasingly dramatic effect on coastal zone management in the foreseeable future—but data from the Copernicus Sentinel missions have the potential to add enormous value to coastal zone management solutions.

The restoration service of the Copernicus Sentinel-2 long term archived products will be temporarily suspended on 4 May starting from 06:00 UTC due to a planned maintenance at ground segment level. The service will be resumed by the end of the same day.

Related to the quality degradation of Copernicus Sentinel-5P data announced in the related news, the parameter qa_value for filtering the data, as recommended in the Product Readme Files, will not remove the data with degraded quality.

A change has been made in the time duration of the Copernicus Sentinel-3A/3B SLSTR L2 NTC user products. The new Copernicus Sentinel-3 Land PDGS Product Units Configuration document describes the configuration applied for the generation of the products at Land PDGS.

Last February, Argentina was struck with a severe storm that caused floods and damage. Data from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission helped to map the event, in ways which could assist crop insurers with occurred losses.

Due to an issue (and still ongoing) at Ground Station level on 20 April 2020:

SRAL STC Copernicus Sentinel-3A and -3B data starting from sensing time (UT) 09:24:01 to 22:14:30 on 21 April 2020 will be delayed.
