Atmospheric Motion Vectors - MSG - 0 degree

Abstract:
Atmospheric Motion Vectors at all heights below the tropopause, derived from 5 channels (Visual 0.8, Water Vapour 6.2, Water Vapour 7.3, Infrared 10.8 and the High Resolution Visual channel), all combined into one product. Vectors are derived by tracking the motion of clouds and other atmospheric constituents as water vapour patterns. The initial resolution is a 24 pixels grid (HRV 12 high res. pixels), but as the algorithm tries to adjust the position to the point of the maximum contrast (typically cloud edges), the end resolution varies. The height assignment of the AMVs is calculated using the Cross-Correlation Contribution (CCC) function to determine the pixels that contribute the most to the vectors. An AMV product contains between 30 000 and 50 000 vectors depending of the time of the day, and uses SEVERI image data from Meteosat-8 and onwards.
