ESA has recently recovered imagery from the oldest synthetic aperture radar - or SAR - in space, renewing our view of a changing Earth.
Launched in June 1978 and managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, SeaSat was the first to carry a SAR instrument to space - paving the way for the development of follow-on SAR missions like ESA's ERS, Envisat and Sentinel-1.
Last year, NASA released newly reprocessed digital SeaSat imagery. Today, ESA is releasing its own full digitally processed SeaSat dataset acquired at the UK's Oakhanger ground station, which supplements the NASA dataset.
