During the forthcoming EGU General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, which will take place from 12-17 April 2015, ESA is organising the session "Scientific Exploitation of Copernicus Sentinels - EO Research and Innovation".
Interested users who wish to participate to this session are encouraged to submit their contribution before: 7 January 2015

The Sentinel satellites are built primarily to deliver information for environmental services through Europe's Copernicus programme, but they will also be used to advance our scientific understanding of Earth. Paving the way for easy scientific exploitation, ESA has released three new open source scientific software toolboxes.
01 September 2014
Imaging Earth's land with unprecedented speed and resolution has come another step closer as the next Sentinel satellite has been given its solar wing and started a strenuous six-month test campaign to make sure that it is fit for launch next April.
28 May 2014
Europe's upcoming Sentinel-2 mission has reached a significant milestone on its road to delivering high-resolution optical images for monitoring our changing land. Seven years in the making, the state-of-the art imager is ready to join the first satellite.
26 May 2014
With the first Sentinel satellite already in orbit, scientists and users gathered in Italy last week to discuss the progress of the upcoming Sentinel-2 mission and its many applications.
30 April 2014
The European Space Agency, in the context of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) element, is organising an event dedicated to prepare for scientific exploitation of the Sentinel-2 mission, entitled "Sentinel-2 for Science Workshop", which will be hosted in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 20 to 22 May 2014.

The 2014 World Wetlands Day highlights the need for wetlands and the agriculture sector to work together. ESA's GlobWetland II project assists Mediterranean countries in the sustainable use of these areas and demonstrates the evolution of wetlands and agricultural patterns over time.
29 November 2013
Scientists have used satellite observations to create a set of high-resolution 3D maps of the entire Great Barrier Reef - a critical step towards identifying, managing and protecting what lies beneath the waters.
15 November 2013
Free and open access to Sentinel satellite data will be granted for the Copernicus operational phase.
In order to prepare for the exploitation of Sentinel-2 type of time series, the European Space Agency, in collaboration with RapidEye, collected an unprecedented time series from February to June 2013 with a 5 day revisit at high resolution over 14 selected sites around the world.
19 September 2013
ESA is sponsoring an initiative to explore the possible benefits that the Copernicus programme’s Sentinel satellites can bring to geo-information communities in over 20 European countries.
The initiative, led by the European Umbrella Organisation for Geo-Information, Eurogi, explores the potential interest of the community for Copernicus products and services based on space data.
04 July 2013
Europe's ambitious global environmental monitoring programme will now be able to move into operation thanks to the European Parliament's approval of the multiannual financial framework budget for 2014-20.
14 June 2013
Satellites are being used to promote agriculture in one of the world's poorest countries.
08 May 2013
A recent study brings forward the idea that data from the upcoming Sentinel series of satellites should be regarded as Public Sector Information, increasing their value for money.
22 March 2013
ESA's SMOS satellite is not only proving its worth by mapping soil moisture and ocean salinity, this multifaceted satellite has now shown that it can 'see' through vegetation to monitor wetlands for a better understanding of Earth's carbon cycle.
13 March 2013
From 800 km high, Earth-observing satellites are assisting international development organisations with their work in developing countries. Satellites enable objective observations of the status of remote rural areas consistently over space and time.
19 February 2013
Good news for Europe's Global Monitoring for Environment and Security programme: the European Council has secured the programme's EU funding through 2020.
13 February 2013
ESA and NASA have joined forces to ensure that Sentinel-2 and the newly launched Landsat Data Continuity Mission offer compatible data products, thereby bringing greater benefits to users of images of Earth's land and coastal zones.
19 December 2012
The effects of climate change, population growth and economic development in the Mediterranean are posing a threat to the water supply in the region. As part of ESA's TIGER initiative, satellite data are supporting water management by identifying water resources.
