ESA has defined a new Earth Observation Data Policy which was approved by the ESA Earth Observation Programme Board in May 2010. The new data policy applies to the ESA missions, i.e. to ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat, GOCE, SMOS, CryoSat and future Earth Explorer missions. It is derived from the Principles of Sentinel Data Policy.

The first GOCE Level 2 data products, based on approximately 2 months of Level 1b data, and presented at ESA's Living Planet symposium in Bergen, Norway last week, are now available to all users. The Level 1b and Level 2 products can be accessed through the regular Earth Observation user interface, EOLi-SA.
Plots of the planned ERS-2 SAR acquisitions for the coming week are available here.
