Detecting and Monitoring Wildfires Around The World
The Copernicus Program
Five Copernicus satellites are now in orbit (Sentinel 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B and 3A). Two more satellites will go into orbit in the next months: Sentinel-5P and Sentinel-3B.
Six families of Sentinel satellites make up the core of EU's Copernicus environmental monitoring program. They provide a unique set of observations that start with the all-weather, day and night radar images from Sentinel-1 and continue with optical images from Sentinel-2. Sentinel-3 will observe ocean properties and behavior, while Sentinel-4 will measure atmospheric gases. Finally, Sentinel-5 will help monitor air quality, and Sentinel-6 will provide high-precision and timely observations of the topography of the global ocean.
