New rolling archive policy for Sentinel data

Terrascope provides a wide variety of Earth observation data, including various data sets from the Sentinel satellites. Here's overview of which data is available over Belgium or other countries and how long the data remains available.

Reprocessing of Sentinel-2 vegetation indices

We hereby inform you that we found an error in the vegetation indices for the products within the period 25/01/2022 – 10/05/2022. The error has been rectified in the NRT processing and data since 11/05/2022 are correct. Discover more about the reprocessing of the other Sentinel-2 vegetation products.

Impact of Sentinel-1B failure

Following the Sentinel-1B anomaly that occurred on 23 December 2021 and the news that no new acquisitions are expected for at least a few months we give an overview of the impact on the Sentinel-1 related products and services accessible via Terrascope. 

New Sentinel-5P data products coming up this year!

In collaboration with the Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB) we will expand our offer of Sentinel-5P TROPOMI data products. We will release daily, monthly and yearly averaged data products for methane, formaldehyde, and sulfur dioxide in our Terrascope viewer later this year. Further, we will collaborate with BIRA-IASB and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) on an improved nitrogen dioxide product for the European region, which we expect to release in 2023.

What’s coming in 2022?

A new year also means new and improved data and services. Discover which data products, EO services, technical updates and new features you can expect in 2022.

A brand new Marketplace to access and offer EO services

In January 2022 we will launch the Terrascope Marketplace, a brand new platform to access and offer a variety of high-quality EO data and services. The Terrascope marketplace is a valuable and innovative platform to bring end users and service providers together. For end users, it is the place to discover EO services that meet their requirements. For service providers, it is an easy way to offer their technology to the world.

Monitoring volcano ash plumes on La Palma with different satellites

On 19 September 2021, the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma (Canary Islands, Spain) started to erupt for the first time since 1971. Together with the outflowing lava, the crater ejected large ash plumes containing several gases, among which sulfur dioxide (SO2). Discover how three satellite instrument allow us to map and monitor the volcano ash plumes and SO2 transport.
