Sentinel 1 A Alaska Sample

Copernicus Sentinel 1A data processed by ESA is now available from NASA’s Alaska Satellite Facility (ASF) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC).

On October 16, 2015, the United States of America (US) State Department and the European Commission (EC), signed a Cooperation Arrangement on Earth Observation data. Following this, NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) will sign a Technical Operating Arrangement that provides access to data from the Sentinel satellites, the dedicated space component of the European Copernicus programme.

NASA, working in conjunction with ESA, has implemented a Sentinel data mirror archive in the U.S. for re-use and re-dissemination of Sentinel products. The NASA mirror will increase distribution capacity, maximizing the benefits to Earth Science research and applications. As per the agreement, NASA will make the Sentinel core products available to users who register for Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) user accounts and who have agreed to the terms and conditions set by the European Union to access Sentinel data. Sentinel data archived by NASA will be provided to all science data users without further access conditions or restrictions.

To access the NASA mirror of Sentinel 1A data, please visit the ASF DAAC website: https://www.asf.alaska.edu/sentinel/.
