Imagery and case studies of weather phenomena and environmental events observed by EUMETSAT's fleet of weather satellites.
Arctic Sea Ice Minimum 2020
In September 2020 the Arctic sea ice extent shrunk to the second lowest in the 42-year satellite record.
Meanders in the Mediterranean
Instabilities in ocean currents can be identified through synergistic use of data from the Copernicus Sentinel-3 satellites.
Swirls of cyanobacteria in the Baltic Sea
Blooms of blue-green algae were visible across the Baltic Sea in Sentinel-3 imagery during August 2019.
Sentinel-3 spots Sargassum seaweed
In early July 2019, Sentinel-3 captured images showing blooms of Sargassum seaweed.
Big blooms of coccolithophores along UK south coast
Sentinel-3 data provided perspective on big blooms of coccolithophores that formed off the southern coast of the UK in late June/early July 2019.
June solstice 2019
The June solstice is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. It took place at 15:54 UTC on 21 June.
Anticyclonic eddy in the Mediterranean Sea
In May 2019, an anticyclonic eddy formed between the islands of Mallorca and Sardinia.
Indications of deep water formation in the Gulf of Lion from Sentinel-3 multi-sensor synergy
Combining data from both sea surface temperature radiometry and altimetry provides clues about the occurrence of complex physical oceanographic processes across the ocean depths.
How Sentinel-3 products are helping tackle the issues of underwater imaging
Ocean colour satellites can be used to measure light attenuation in the water column – a crucial factor when processing images.
Sea-ice melt resulted in cold water spill over the Labrador Current
Ice melt along the Labrador coast resulted in freshwater water spill over the Labrador Current, showing some very steep gradients in temperature and chlorophyll concentration fields while meeting the warm Gulf current around Newfoundland.
