As well as monitoring plant growth, Copernicus Sentinel-2 can be used to map changes in land cover and to monitor the world's forests. It also provides information on pollution in lakes and coastal waters. Images of floods, volcanic eruptions and landslides contribute to disaster mapping and help humanitarian relief efforts.

Franz Schug of the Humboldt-Unversität zu Berlin, Germany, has discovered that Copernicus Sentinel-2 data is fundamental for his current project.
