Following the eruption of the Kīlauea volcano in Hawaii and the associated earthquakes, the Sentinel-1 observation plan has been amended to allow interferometry at 6 days in ascending and descending geometry, utilising the Sentinel-1A and Sentinel-1B satellites.
An updated version of the Level-1B product notice for Sentinel-3 SLSTR has been released. The new version contains an update to better explain a limitation with Bayesian/probabilistic cloud screening.
Users are informed that a blocking incident occurred on the Open Access and Copernicus Services Data Hubs today with a downtime of approximately 44 minutes from 08:18 to 09:02 UTC.
Due to a ground segment anomaly, the availability of Sentinel-2 L1C products was delayed in the data hubs on 29 April 2018.

On 17 July and 21 September 2016, two unprecedented giant ice avalanches of 70 or 80 million m3, respectively, rushed down from two adjacent glaciers in Tibet with speeds of up to 300 km/h, over slopes as low as a few degrees.

Register now for the RUS Oil spill mapping with Sentinel-1 webinar taking place on Tuesday 15 May 2018 from 14.30 to 16:00 CEST. 


The Oil spill mapping with Sentinel-1 webinar will illustrate:

  • how to access the RUS Service
  • how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites
  • the methodology to map an area affected by oil spill pollution, using ESA SNAP Sentinel-1 Toolbox.
The second Sentinel-3 satellite, Copernicus Sentinel-3B, was launched on 25 April, joining its identical twin Sentinel-3A in orbit. This pairing of satellites increases coverage and data delivery for the European Union's Copernicus environment programme.
Users are informed that the incident on the Data Hub infrastructure which occurred earlier today at 9:30 UTC was resolved at 14:15 UTC.
The launch of Sentinel-3B will complete the Sentinel-3 constellation and represents the culmination of months of training to fly Europe's latest Copernicus satellite.

Users are informed that a blocking infrastructure incident has occurred at one of the data hub centres on 24 April 2018 at 09:30 UTC.
