Earth Observation information discovery platform

The ERS programme celebrated its 30th anniversary on 17 July. Today, we are still exploiting ERS data and experts continue to work on improving the data the programme acquired.
A new dataset of Swarm Ion Temperature Estimation (SITE) is now available for the three Swarm spacecraft.
With integration of four additional Envisat ASAR Level 1 collections, ESA is now providing access to the complete Envisat and ERS (A)SAR imagery data archive.
New versions of the SMOS processors for level 1 and 2 were deployed in the operational ground segment on 25 May 2021.
In the Third Party Missions Programme framework, archive collections from GeoEye-1, QuickBird-2 and WorldView (1 to 4) have been opened to users.
A large amount of additional ERS-1/2 SAR data is now available to users via the dedicated ESA (A)SAR dissemination service.
