The reprocessed SMOS level 3 and level 4 sea ice thickness products over Arctic are now available from the ESA SMOS dissemination service The products cover the time period from October 2010 to April 2021.
Two new imaging modes, Wide ScanSAR and Staring Spotlight, have been added to the PAZ offering and are now available to users for research and application development following submission of a project proposal subject to evaluation and acceptance by ESA and the data owner.
From the beginning of 2022, ESA will start the distribution of the European coverage of Landsat 8 Collection-2 Level 1 and Level 2 products.
WorldDEM products have been added to the TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X offering and are now available to users for research and application development following submission of a project proposal subject to evaluation and acceptance by ESA and the data owner.
The third step in a process to improve the user interface for data access requests will take place on 24 November.
Additional TII cross-track flow data are now available on the Swarm dissemination server for all the Swarm satellites.

    Swarm’s orbital dance: counter-rotating and closer, for the benefit of science

    Since variations in Earth’s magnetic field directly reflect the flow of fluid in the outermost core, new information from Swarm will further our understanding of the physics and dynamics of Earth's stormy heart—and the satellites are recently flying in a counter-rotating phase and closer in their separation, to enable scientists to discover new elements.
