Congratulations to @europeanspaceagency for the successful launch and deployment of #Sentinel1. We need data for effective #climateaction

First command! #ESOC sends the first command to #Sentinel1 B - just a simple ping to say hello

Be the first to catch a signal from #Cubesats

지연이 합성해야되는데 ㅋㅋ 스프린트는 쏘쏘 다음엔 비스트 거거싱! 😜 💪🙌🐰브요미 생일추카해~ 😍🎂💕

Brilliant few days in @unilincoln studying soil moisture using multiple platforms and sensors. Hopefully a taste of things to come! #thesis #COSMOS #CEH #sentinel1

Screw it. It was on sale so I pulled the trigger on this puppy. Gonna get converted into a Cobra sub when I get the time.

#LarsenC ice shelf as seen by the #SAR instrument on #Sentinel1 on 28 June, and published in an article by Project MIDAS (www.projectmidas.org)

In another sign that the iceberg calving is imminent, the soon-to-be-iceberg part of Larsen C Ice Shelf has tripled in speed to more than ten meters per day between 24th and 27th June 2017. The iceberg remains attached to the ice shelf, but its outer end is moving at the highest speed ever recorded on this ice shelf. We still can’t tell when calving will occur - it could be hours, days or weeks - but this is a notable departure from previous observations. The most recent observations on 27th June do not cover the rift tip, but a low resolution Sentinel-1 image of just after midnight on 28th June shows clearly that the iceberg remains attached to the ice shelf at its western end - for now.

When it calves, the Larsen C Ice Shelf will lose more than 10% of its area to leave the ice front at its most retreated position ever recorded; this event will fundamentally change the landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Unnamed firefighter dude.

Only five points of articulation (like regular SW figs), but I love his design.

Dunno if this guy is a goodie or a baddie, but I'm making him the villain.

I dig this dude, but his limbs have that slight discolouration that those old Stormtrooper figs get.

Bought myself an early birthday present. My birthday ain't 'til December, but I have time off and hadn't bought any figs for myself lately.

Fifteen True Heroes Sentinel-1 soldiers in total (some not pictured here). Paint application is kinda crap, but the tooling is noice. I dig the mountaineer in white.

The swirling landscape of Iran’s salt desert, Dasht-e Kavir, is reminiscent of an abstract painting in this Sentinel-1 image.
With temperatures reaching about 50ºC in the summer, this area sees little precipitation, but runoff from the surrounding mountains creates seasonal lakes and marshes. The high temperatures cause the water to evaporate, leaving behind clays and sand soils with a high concentration of minerals.
The ‘brushstroke’ patterns are geological layers eroded primarily by wind.
Iran is one of the world’s most important mineral producers. Earth-observing satellites are useful for finding and monitoring natural resources like minerals.
Along the left side of the image we can see part of an area known as the ‘devil’s dunes’ because it was believed to be haunted by evil spirits. This belief likely originated from its hostile conditions, and the early travellers who did attempt to cross it probably never returned due to starvation or dehydration.
This image combines three scans from Sentinel-1A’s radar on 21 January, 14 February and 9 March 2016. Changes between the acquisitions appear in vibrant bright colours – such as the blues, reds and greens we see primarily on the left half of the image. These areas are salt lakes and the colours show fluctuations in the amount of water present over time.

This image taken over part of northeast Greenland’s coast combines three images from Sentinel-1A’s radar on 15 February, 10 March and 3 April 2016.
The shades of grey on the left side of the image depict the static landmass, while the colours on the right show changes in sea-ice type and cover between the three radar scans.
Near the centre-left we can see the Zachariae Isstrom glacier, which is losing about five billion tonnes of ice a year to the ocean.
Zachariae’s dynamics have been changing over the last few years, calving high volumes of icebergs, which will inevitably affect sea levels. It is estimated that the entire Zachariae Isstrom glacier in northeast Greenland holds enough water to raise global sea levels by more than 46 cm.
Scientists have determined that the bottom of Zachariae Isstrom is being rapidly eroded by warmer ocean water mixed with growing amounts of meltwater from the ice sheet surface.
Zachariae and the nearby Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden to its north are two of six glaciers being monitored in near-real time by Sentinel-1 through a new web portal by the UK’s Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling. The portal provides frequent maps of ice velocity of key glaciers in both Greenland and Antarctica.
The polar regions are some of the first to experience and visibly demonstrate the effects of climate change, serving as barometers for change in the rest of the world. It is therefore critical that polar ice is monitored comprehensively and in a sustained manner.

Sentinel-1 radar images under Hurricane Irma 
This year’s Atlantic hurricane season has been a harsh reminder of the grief and devastation brought by these vast storms. Imaging the top of hurricanes from space is nothing new, but the Sentinel-1 satellites can see right through these towering spinning weather systems, measuring the sea surface below to help predict the storm’s path. 
The 2017 hurricane season isn’t even over yet, but 10 Atlantic storms in a row have already reached hurricane strength – the first time this has happened in more than a century. 
Since understanding and predicting these powerful weather systems is essential to saving lives and property, scientists have been looking into how the Copernicus Sentinel-1 radar mission can help. 
The first of the two images shows wave heights of up to 10 m high under Hurricane Irma as it struck Cuba and the Florida keys on 9 and 10 September 2017, respectively. 
The second image is a radar vision of the sea surface under the hurricane.

Sagaing Division, Myanmar 
The Copernicus Sentinel-1A satellite brings us over part of the Sagaing Division in northwest Myanmar, and along the border with India. 
Snaking through the image is the Chindwin River, which breached its banks during a period of severe flooding in 2015. Monsoon rains beginning that July caused multiple rivers in the region to overflow, causing widespread damage and affecting up to a million people. 
This image was created using two passes by Sentinel-1’s radar: one before the flooding on 20 March 2015 and the other during the event on 4 September 2015. Combining them shows changes between the images, such as the inundation of some 111 000 hectares of land on either sides of the river bank appearing in red. 
This information was then released in the form of a map under the International Charter Space and Major Disasters to assist relief efforts. 
Currently lead by ESA, the Charter is an international collaboration between 16 owners or operators of Earth observation missions. It provides rapid access to satellite data to help disaster management authorities in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. 
Sentinel-1’s radar ability to ‘see’ through clouds, rain and in darkness makes it particularly useful for monitoring floods. •
