Satellites from the Oceans Missions will monitor and collect information’s on every two days about global coverage of land, ice and water. This Earth observatory is conducted with the purpose to help the climate change problem.
The seventh satellite for ocean and land monitoring under the EU’s Copernicus environment programme was launched last week. The second Sentinel-3 satellite joins its identical twin Sentinel-3A as part of the Oceans Mission, expected to provide global coverage of land, ice and water every two days. The additional data provided by the satellite will help improve the understanding of sea level changes, marine pollution and biological productivity which are all important climate change indicators. The mission is also expected to deliver unique and timely information about changing land cover, urban heat islands and water levels in lakes and rivers. […]
