How to Download Sentinel Satellite Data for Free

One of the most exciting developments in remote sensing at this time is the European Space Agency’s Copernicus Programme. Copernicus’ six Sentinel satellites collects comprehensive pictures of our land, ocean, emergency response, atmosphere, security and climate change to understand the health of our planet. Until very recently, this data has become available to the public at no cost Today, we show you step-by-step how to download Sentinel satellite data: Sentinels Scientific Data Hub In 2014-15, Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2A were successfully launched from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana. One Sentinel scene after the other, data has been rolling out on a user interface called the Sentinels Scientific Data Hub. It’s now available for the public to access. But you will have to hop through a couple of hoops before you can get your fingers on it. What’s Next? Aerea Download. ESA CCI Soil Moisture website.

On the basis of soil parameters provided by HWSD seven key soil qualities important for crop production have been derived, namely: nutrient availability, nutrient retention capacity, rooting conditions, oxygen availability to roots, excess salts, toxicities, and workability.

Soil qualities are related to the agricultural use of the soil and more specifically to specific crop requirements and tolerances. For the illustration of soil qualities, maize was selected as reference crop because of its global importance and wide geographical distribution. Soil qualities and related soil characteristics Soil qualities have been estimated for the sequence 1 soils in each grid cell with as reference crop maize. The derived maps for the individual soil qualities represent therefore the qualities of ‘main soils’ only. Details of estimation procedures for the individual soil qualities from soil characteristics in HWSD are: Nutrient availability (SQ1) Nutrient retention capacity (SQ2) Free GIS Datasets - Categorised List.
