Ezhkov and Kaverzina capture top trophies in Zadar, Croatia as teams look ahead to the upcoming European Championship in Sibenik on July 12-15
Zadar, Croatia (June 11, 2017) – The third event of the 2017 Melges 20 World League, European Division came to a close today with a full and complete, top-to-bottom Russian podium. The last day of racing commenced under very shifty conditions. After a wholehearted attempt by the Race Committee to set the course and give a start for Race Seven, the shifting breeze simply refused to cooperate.
The test, which was done as part of Sentinel-2B’s commissioning, included capturing a strip of images from Europe to North Africa and downlinking the data in just six minutes.
This achievement is not only thanks to cutting-edge laser technology, but also the power of ESA’s partnerships with space industries and the European Union.
Following its launch on 7 March, Sentinel-2B is set to be commissioned on 15 June. It joins its twin, Sentinel-2A, which is already supplying a wealth of high-resolution images for the European Union’s Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.
The Sentinel-2 mission not only provides information to improve agricultural practices and map changes in land cover, but it also helps to monitor the world’s forests, detects pollution in lakes and coastal waters, and contributes to disaster mapping. Many of these applications rely on imaging the same area in quick succession.
