ESA is further expanding the Near Real Time (NRT) Envisat dataset available free of charge on Internet with the extension of the MERIS Full Resolution (FR) data systematic processing to cover Africa.
Plots of the planned ERS-2 SAR acquisitions for the coming week are available here.
Image of the Week
This Envisat Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) composite image shows the Bay of Naples off the west coast of Italy. This image was created by combining three Envisat ASAR acquisitions taken over the same area. The colours in the image result from variations on the surface that occurred between acquisitions.
Earth Observation Events
28 June 2010 - 2 July 2010
The 2010 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium follows the previous successful ENVISAT Symposia in Montreux (2007), Salzburg (2004), Gothenburg (2000), Florence (1997), Hamburg (1993) and Cannes (1992). The Symposium will provide an opportunity to present results from missions in exploitation (ERS-2, ENVISAT, GOCE, SMOS, CRYOSAT, Third Party Missions) and to introduce future ESA missions (GMES Sentinels, Earth Explorers, meteorological missions) and national EO missions.
