Author(s): J. Nieke; C. Mavrocordatos

Paper Abstract

The Sentinel-3 (S3) is a Global Land and Ocean Mission [1] currently in development as part of the European Commission’s Copernicus programme (former: Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) [2]).

The multi-instrument Sentinel-3 mission measures sea-surface topography, sea- and land-surface temperature, ocean colour and land colour to support ocean forecasting systems, as well as environmental and climate monitoring with near-real time data.
