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).

Over 17 years in service: Meteosat-7 is longest-serving Eumetsat satellite

Global observation of swells in the Indian Ocean on 09 December 2008

The seventh of the Meteosat First Generation series of satellites was launched in September 1997 and is currently the longest-serving operational Eumetsat's satellite. Meteosat-7 had a designed life prospect of five years. 

In 2006, Meteosat-7 was relocated to provide Indian Ocean Data Coverage (IODC) in support of the tsunami early warning system.

Located above the Equator at longitude 57.5 °E, and 35,800 km away from the Earth, it relays data from Data Collection Platforms with a frequency of 30 minutes.
