With two sensors now in orbit, the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellites could monitor some parts of the world almost daily. This capability could be crucial in monitoring rapidly developing events such as biotic/abiotic stress on crops and provide accurate and timely information from farmers to policy-makers, to develop appropriate mitigation strategies.

The Level 2 Land Surface Temperature data (SL_2_LST) both in Near-Real-Time (NRT) and in Non-Time-Critical (NTC) timeliness of the Copernicus Sentinel-3B Sea and Land Surface Temperature Radiometer (SLSTR) instrument and all Synergy data product types (SY_2_SYN, SY_2_VGP, SY_2_VG1, SY_2_V10) are now available on the Sentinel-3 Pre-Operational Hub.

ESA is working on an improvement of the Copernicus Sentinel-1 Wave Mode 2 performance, by optimising the antenna configuration (new antenna gain settings allowing a better SNR).

Copernicus Sentinel-1B was unavailable on 23 February 2019 between 12.00 UTC and 15:07 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

The Copernicus Open Access Hub will be updated to new software versions in the coming weeks. A series of maintenance activities are scheduled on the data services from 26 February to 11 March 2019.

When Mount Agung in Indonesia erupted in 2017, the search was on to find out why it had stirred. Thanks to information on ground deformation from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, scientists now have more insight into the volcano's hidden secrets that caused it to reawaken.

The Copernicus Sentinel-3 Altimetry Processing Baseline (PB) was deployed on 14 February 2019 at the ESA Sentinel-3 Land centres.

Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable from 14 February 2019 at 19:54 UTC to 15 February 2019 at 10:26 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

With reference to the news published on 12 February, the analysis of the Sentinel-2A products affected by degraded quality has been completed.

Due to a network issue, Near Real Time SLSTR Level 1 and Level 2 Copernicus Sentinel-3A and -3B products on 14 February 2019 starting from sensing time 08:20 to 10:30 UTC will be delayed. Recovery is on going.
