Delivering Earth observation data services to Copernicus from the Sentinel satellites and the ocean-monitoring Jason-2 and Jason-3 satellites.
We are responsible for operating the Sentinel-3 satellites, with ESA support, and delivering the marine data, and will operate and deliver products from the Sentinel-4 and Sentinel-5 instruments, and the Sentinel-6 satellites.
We will also be responsible for delivering data and products from Sentinel missions to third parties around the world.
The current key Copernicus products for ocean monitoring are sea level measured by altimetry instruments; sea surface temperature derived from infrared data; and ocean colour derived from visible spectrum instruments.
Copernicus data can be accessed via EUMETCast, Copernicus Online Data Access (CODA) and the Data Centre.
Copernicus imagery can be viewed via our web map service and in specific case studies.
