After a change of processing baseline to version 2.03, a quality issue has been detected in the Sentinel-2A generated products. All data generated since the morning of 9 June featuring v2.03 baseline are being removed from the data hubs and should be discarded by users if already downloaded.

Estonia has been awarded its first contract since becoming an ESA Member State in 2015. Over the next three years, scientists from Estonia's Tartu Observatory will head an international team to ensure that Sentinel-3's measurements of ocean colour are of the highest quality possible.

Further to the message published on 06 June regarding Sentinel-2A data dissemination interruption, ESA is pleased to announce that nominal operations have resumed and the backlog since 31 May as well as new products are progressively made available on the Sentinels data hubs.

Due to a satellite anomaly followed by a ground segment anomaly, Sentinel-2A data are unavailable on the DataHub since 31 May 2016 07:00 AM.

Dutch company Orbital Eye has developed a service that uses satellites to monitor gas and oil pipelines. A major African pipeline operator has already signed up for the service.

For a low-lying, densely populated country like the Netherlands, monitoring subsidence is critical. Until recently, tiny displacements in the ground beneath our feet couldn't be mapped nationally but, thanks to the Sentinel-1 mission, this is now possible.

The unprecedented frequency of Sentinel observations capture rapid changes in agricultural production from national to field scale, serving as a major support for environmental monitoring and agricultural subsidy control.

ESA today unveiled the first Sentinel-1 satellite images sent via the European Data Relay System's world-leading laser technology in high orbit.
Cyclone Roanu has claimed over 100 lives in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, and has left tens of thousands in need of aid. Officials are looking to the sky for information on flooded areas to analyse the cyclone's aftermath and support emergency response activities.

ESA is pleased to announce the publication of the first Sentinel-3A sample products from the OLCI instrument, acquired during the first month of satellite commissioning.

The products are available for download from the Sentinel Scientific Data Hub starting from 25 May 2016.
