How to batch download Sentinel data

The availability of recent, high resolution and free data sources with the sentinel missions drive the increased use of sentinel images for disaster mapping. For some analyses such as droughts, images of many different time points are necessary or large areas are covered.

New instrument for monitoring sea level change

ESA’s Earth observation satellite Sentinel-3A has on its board a new instrument measuring sea surface height and wave height. The Synthetic Aperture Radar Altimeter (SRAL) delivers accurate measurements and provides the Copernicus ocean forecasting systems with data for monitoring the sea level change. The data come with two different time stamps-Near real time (NRT) and Short Time Critical (STC).

The Sentinel-3A, one of the most complete Copernicus missions, has advanced instruments to measure the temperature on oceans, land, ice and atmosphere. After going through testing and improvements since its launch on February 2016, it has released high quality information from the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument in October this year.

Successful launch of the Sentinel-3A satellite for Europe’s Copernicus Environment Programme

Sentinel-3A satellite

On 16 February 2016, the Sentinel-3A satellite was successfully launched from Plesetsk, Russia.  The 1150 kilogram satellite is the third in a series of satellites to be placed in orbit, and will contribute to monitor the environment and support civil security activities.

The Director General of the European Space Agency (ESA), Mr. Jan Woerner, commented that “with the successful launch of Sentinel-3 we are now looking forward to how our teams of experts will steer this mission into its operational life – like they have done the first two satellites of the series”.
