Sentinel-1 in

We are pleased to inform that Sentinel-1 Ground Range Detected (GRD) Extra Wide (EW) swath mode now are available in (i.e. Get Data -> National hub). The Sentinel-1 satellites carries a C-band SAR instrumet which is, among others, capable of acquiring radar-"images" of the earth surface independent of clouds in the athmosphere and sunlight. 

Looking at temporal change with Sentinel-2 in Python

The Sentinel data are, among others, excellent for monitoring temporal change. Here, we look at an output from creating false colour vegetation RGB (Red, Green, Blue) composites of an area (covering Gardermoen airport outside Oslo) in Python for looking at the temporal change in vegetation. The Python script is available on the following github gist and can be run directly since it reads the data using OPeNDAP here.
