The satellite Meteosat 9 or MSG 2 provides a large step
forward in our capabilities to observe the Earth from
geostationary orbit. Radiometer SEVIRI explores the Earth’s full disk
with a nominal repeat cycle of only 15 min using 12
spectral channels and a spatial sampling of 3 km.
One channel, the high-resolution visible (HRV)
channel number 12, even has a sampling distance of only 1 km.
This animation is elaborated in the infrared IR field 10.8 μm
with coloured thermics.
The infrared channels of Meteosat 9 are sensitive to the temperature of the objects and allow to detect clouds day and night.
is another composite product of Meteosat 9 satellite and its picture is based upon data combinations of colours
from infrared and water vapour channels and it can be used day and night.
