Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite ensures continuity of sea-surface height measurements

Michael Freilich Satellite Sentinel 6. Image: ESA

A new satellite that allows the most accurate measurements of sea level yet was successfully launched on 21 November. The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite will map up to 95 per cent of the world’s oceans every 10 days, taking continuous measurements of sea surface and wave height as well as of wind speed. It thus will provide crucial data for disaster and emergency management, helping to forecast cyclones, droughts, hurricanes and heat waves.
