Envisat services interrupted

MERIS algal-2 map from the last Envisat image taken at 11h03 - The Atlantic off Portugal. Provided by ESA.

This image provides the OCPortugal partners with the most recent reference MERIS pigment indices for inter-comparisons with the results of regional bio-optical inversion algorithms, with a view to assessments of satellite observations in Portuguese coastal waters.


After 10 years of service, Envisat has stopped sending data to Earth. Last images were on the Atlantic off Portugal.  ESA’s mission control is working to re-establish contact with the satellite.
