Orbit Maintenance Manoeuvre on Swarm Alpha on 13 July 2017

19 July 2017

We would like to inform the Swarm users that an Orbit Maintenance Manoeuvre was successfully performed on Swarm Alpha on 13 July 2017 starting at 14:17:55 UTC.

This manoeuvre lowered the orbit and did not contain any slew. The EFI was scheduled to be in ready state during the time of the manoeuvre therefore the EFI operations were not affected.


2nd Proba-V Symposium 29-31 May 2018

20 July 2017

After more than 4 years of successful operations, Proba-V is consolidating its role as a key data provider to the Copernicus Global Land Service as well as a valuable complement to the Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 suite of optical sensors.

Consequently, to further promote the scientific and operational exploitation of Proba-V data, a second "Proba-V Symposium" is taking place from 29 to 31 May 2018 in Belgium.

Following the first successful Proba-V Symposium 2016, a new 2018 edition of the symposium will gather the Proba-V users, scientists, students, representatives from national, European and international agencies, operational end-users and value adding industries once again.

More information will be available on the Proba-V VITO website, shortly.

Please save the date and stay tuned.


Full reprocessed SMOS Level 2 sea surface salinity dataset now available

20 July 2017

ESA would like to inform the SMOS data users that the full reprocessed SMOS level 2 sea surface salinity dataset is now available on the SMOS data dissemination service. Following the reprocessing that finished in May 2017 a "gap-filling" reprocessing was performed to align to the operational product start.

The sensing time covered by the "gap-filling" reprocessing is from 1 February 2017 to 9 May 2017.

For further information on level 2 surface salinity v662 products see the read-me-first note.

For product performance see the reprocessing quality control report and the reprocessing data verification report.

The SMOS level 2 sea surface salinity data users should carefully consult those documents to ensure optimum exploitation of the v662 dataset.

With Sentinel-5 Precursor about to be packed up and shipped to Russia for liftoff in late September, media representatives, members of the UK Space Agency and National Centre for Earth Observation had the chance to see this Copernicus air-pollution monitoring satellite standing proud in the cleanroom.

Sentinel-5 Precursor – also known as Sentinel-5P – is the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere.

It has been built to map a multitude of trace gases such as nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane that affect air quality.
