What is the resolution of the Sentinel-2 mission?

What is the revisit frequency of the Sentinel-2 satellites?

  • The revisit frequency of each single SENTINEL-2 satellite is 10 days and the combined constellation revisit is 5 days. The spatial resolution of an instrument is the at-ground representation of an individual detector in a satellite sensor array.

What is Sentinel-2 and how does it work?

  • SENTINEL-2, launched as part of the European Commission’s Copernicus program on June 23, 2015, was designed specifically to deliver a wealth of data and imagery.

What is temporal resolution in satellite imagery?

  • Temporal Resolution. Temporal resolution is the amount of time, expressed in days, that elapses before a satellite revisits a particular point on the Earth's surface. The satellites in the SENTINEL-2 constellation will provide a revisit time of 5 days at the equator in cloud-free conditions.
