The Copernicus Sentinel-1 Wave Mode performance will be improved with a change performed on the beam 2, by optimising the antenna configuration. This change is characterised by a higher incidence angle of beam 2 (equivalent to swath 4 of the Stripmap mode) and new antenna gain settings, that will allow a substantial gain on the Signal to Noise Ratio.

A contingency at ground segment level occurred on the evening of 17 June, preventing the generation of several Copernicus Sentinel-2 products. The issue has been fixed early in the morning on 18 June and nominal operations has resumed.

The latest release of the SLSTR L2 LST products includes two new evolutions: i) scientifically meaningful and traceable LST uncertainties; and ii) an improved snow masking scheme designed to benefit the retrieval of LST. Both evolutions are detailed in the Product Notice accompanying the release.

We are pleased to announce new processing baseline 2.77-A and 1.55-B for Copernicus Sentinel-3

Due to an issue occurred at Ground Segment level, the Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3B SLSTR Level 1 and Level2 products starting from around sensing time 14-06-2021 06:45:00 UTC to 08:30:00 UTC will be delayed.

Due to a ground segment anomaly in processing, the Sentinel-5P near real time (NRTI) and non time critical (OFFL) production of HCHO maybe missing or have reduced quality since 5th June 2021. The anomaly was caused by an interruption of the background calibration.

Due to an issue that occurred at PDGS level, the Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3B SLSTR Level 1 and Level 2 products from approximate sensing times 08:00 to 13:20 UTC on 8 June may be missed or delayed.

Copernicus Sentinel-1B was unavailable on 7 June 2021 between 12:00 UTC and 14:49 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

Within the next couple of weeks, the Copernicus Sentinel-2 products will be subject of a minor update in the ‘’ file packaged at the root of every product bundle.

Copernicus Sentinel-1B was unavailable on 3 June 2021 between 01:23 and 08:54 UTC, due to a SAR antenna anomaly. No data were generated during this period.
