Collections of Sentinel-3 data are available via the EUMETSAT Data Store from today (21 April).

The first collections in the EUMETSAT Data Store will include all data currently available on Copernicus Online Data Access (CODA) service, from 01/01/2021 to present. These will continue to be updated as operational data streams from 21 April.

Subsequently, collections of reprocessed Sentinel-3 data will be introduced as reprocessing campaigns are completed, as well as some collections from CODAREP and the archive. This will allow users to access full mission archives with the latest processing baselines.

Later in 2022, Sentinel-6 data will also be distributed through the Data Store.

CODA will continue to operate until the end of September 2022. EUMETCast (Satellite and Terrestrial) and the EUMETSAT Data Centre also remain available for accessing Sentinel-3 data.

Product access and collections

Current users of Sentinel-3 data will now be able to access the Sentinel-3 collections in the Data Store using their existing Earth Observation Portal (EOP) account — type 'Sentinel' in top search box to see the available collections. Data products at all timeliness are held within single collections — users can filter for timeliness (among other criteria) once the collection is selected either via the GUI or API (see below for further details).

Using the GUI

Tutorial videos on using the Data Store are available on the EUMETSAT YouTube channel.

Using the APIs and EUMDAC

More information on the Data Store APIs is available in the EUMETSAT knowledge base. The APIs are fully documented and can be implemented in various programming languages. However, to simplify access, EUMETSAT also provides the EUMETSAT Data Access Client (EUMDAC). This facilitates data searching and downloading through both a Python library and a command line interface. More information on EUMDAC and its installation is available on the EUMETSAT GitLab. It can be downloaded as binaries or via the EUMETSAT Anaconda channel.

Using EUMDAC via the command line interface

Once EUMDAC is downloaded and installed, users can follow the command line user guide.

Using EUMDAC via Python

Examples of use of EUMDAC in Python are available on the EUMETSAT GitLab.

Demonstration and training events will be held over the coming months. A Sentinel-3 webinar is planned for 12 May. All events and registration can be accessed through the EUMETSAT training website.
