The Sentinel data dissemination service is back online. The infrastructure issue that occurred on Friday 22 January, at 12:30 UTC, has been solved.

A severe infrastructure failure within the Data Centre hosting the Sentinel Data Hubs has caused the interruption of the open Sentinels data dissemination as of Friday 22 January, 13:30 CET.

Due to a planned MSI (MultiSpectral Instrument) decontamination, Sentinel-2 data will be unavailable from 27 January 2016, 08:30 UTC to 28 January 2016, 08:30 UTC (corresponding approximately to absolute orbits 3121 to 3134).
Due to an on-board anomaly, Sentinel-2A was unavailable on 15 January 2016 from 7:42 to 14:48 UTC approximately.
Following the Christmas break, the Sentinel-3A satellite has been taken out of its storage container and woken up as the campaign to prepare it for launch resumes at the Russian Plesetsk cosmodrome. Liftoff is set for 4 February.

How can access to Sentinel data increase Canada's ability to offer improved information on sea ice?

ESA would like to inform Sentinel-2 data users about the update on 15 December 2015 of the processing baseline of Level-1 products to 02.01.
ESA has ensured the continuation of the Sentinel-1 Earth observation satellite series for Europe's Copernicus environmental programme by ordering two more satellites.
