With its unique sensor and frequent revisit cycle, the Copernicus Sentinel-3A satellite can measure sea level in locations where not previously possible.
Launched in February 2016, Sentinel-3 is the European Union's Copernicus Sentinel satellite mission carrying a suite of instruments to systematically measure Earth's oceans, land, ice and atmosphere to monitor and understand large-scale global dynamics.
