Terrascope used in new ESERO Climate Detectives course

ESERO Belgium, the educational programme of the European Space Agency in Belgium, uses Terrascope in its brand new courses for secondary education. The goal is to learn secondary school students the added value of using EO data to improve climate change monitoring. The trainings include material to investigate a concrete climate-related problem – in this case flooding event in 2021 in the Yser Valley.

Terrascope Sentinel-2 satellite

Restoring missing data

Some Sentinel-2 data are temporarily unavailable on Terrascope. During the implementation of the new Sentinel data retention policy a technical error occurred which led to the removal of data that should have stayed available. The data is already being restored and will be available again as soon as possible. Discover more about which data are missing and when they will be available again.

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.
