Due to a test performed on-board Swarm Alpha from 10 to 12 June 2019, the telemetry data retrieved from this spacecraft was not nominal.
A software maintenance affecting the On-The-Fly (OTF) Third Party Missions (TPM) and ERS / Envisat (A)SAR data dissemination services has been planned for Wednesday.
Due to a planned software maintenance activity, the On-The-Fly (OTF) ALOS PALSAR data dissemination service will be unavailable on Monday 17 June 2019, from 09:00 to 13:00 CEST.

The number of people flocking to cities in search of employment and better prospects is growing at an unprecedented rate. By 2050, the global population is estimated to reach nine billion, 70% of which will be living in urban areas
ESA are pleased to announce the release of PolSARpro v6.0 (Biomass Edition) software, which is the latest version of the ESA PolSARpro Toolbox (Polarimetric SAR data Processing and Educational Toolbox).
The reprocessing campaign for the ERS-1 Scatterometer Level 2 products has been completed adopting the latest Advanced Scatterometer Processing System (ASPS) version 10.04. The reprocessed dataset is now accessible to users together with the corresponding ERS-2 data on the ESA dissemination server and is provided through ESA fast registration.
Due to a planned urgent software maintenance activity, the On-The-Fly (OTF) ALOS PALSAR data dissemination service will be unavailable on Wednesday 12 June 2019, from 09:00 to 17:00 CEST.

The Coastal Thematic Exploitation Platform (C-TEP) has now entered the pre-operations phase.The existing pilot projects will be focused on exploitation of the Earth Observation data to generate and analyze indicators for aquaculture, water quality, integration of tools for information extraction from Earth Online data archives and altimetry analysis.
10 June 2019
Due to an issue with the Electric Field Instrument on-board Swarm Charlie, no Langmuir Probe data are available from 2 June 2019 at 00:06 UTC to 4 June at 11:57 UTC.
Release 6 of the GOCE Gravity Field Model is now available on the GOCE Virtual Archive.

Dramatic changes in the shape of the Antarctic ice sheet have become emblematic of the climate crisis. And, in deference to the critical role that satellites play in measuring and monitoring Antarctic glaciology, seven areas of fast-flowing ice on the Antarctic Peninsula have been named after Earth observation satellites.
The European Space Agency (ESA), in cooperation with the Technical University of Crete, is organising an Advanced Ocean Synergy Training Course devoted to training the next generation of Earth Observation scientists to exploit data from ESA and Third Party Mission instruments for ocean science and application development (e.g. with the Copernicus Sentinels).
The deadline for applications is: 1 September 2019
