Sentinel-1 over the Norwegian mainland

Sentinel-1 data is acquired over Norwegian areas of interest at a high pace. The gif below show the Sentinel-1 interferometric wide swath (IW - the primary mode used for land and coastal areas) products aquired over the Norwegian mainland for a period of six days. From the dayli mosaic, it is evident to explore the various swaths and revisit cycle of the satellite constellation. With a dual satellite constellation, the Sentinel-1 mission guarantees a 6 day revisit cycle at the equator. However, since Sentinel-1 is a polar orbiting mission, the revisit cykle increase with higher latitudes which is beneficial for a country like Norway. The products can inspected more closely in the search interface or by means of the Mosaic Tool.
