Sentinel-3 Products available through the Copernicus Online Data Access (CODA) service
CODA is an online rolling archive with https access to Sentinel-3 Level 1 and Level 2 global data.
19, November 2020
|Latency modes||Description||Time archive|
|Near Real-Time (NRT)||Products available to users within three hours after sensing||1 month|
|Short time critical (STC)||Products available to users within within 48 hours after sensing.
(Only for SRAL products)
|Non time critical (NTC)||Products available to users within one month after sensing||1 year|
How to access CODA
If you already have an Earth Observation Portal (EO Portal) account, use your account credentials to log into CODA (please use Chrome or Firefox). Click ‘OK’ to be redirected to the Earth Observation Portal login screen.
Alternatively go to the EO Portal, log in and follow the link 'Access CODA'.
CODA can also be access through it's API, examples of using this in the Python programming language are available on the EUMETSAT gitlab.
If you do not have an EO Portal account, simply create one and follow the link 'Access CODA'.

Reprocessed data and obtaining a current and consistent mission dataset
Sentinel-3 data that is older than a year, and datasets from the individual sensors that have been reprocessed, is available from CODAREP, the data centre, and in some cases, via FTP. Access to these sources is available through your Earth Observation Portal account credentials, or via direct support from the User Service Helpdesk (in the case of FTP).
Guidance on obtaining the most recently reprocessed data for a specific time period, or a current and consistent dataset for the entire mission, is available at the following links for each sensor:
In the following table, some information about the reprocessed datasets available via CODAREP.
|OLCI reprocessed data||SLSTR reprocessed data||SRAL reprocessed data|
