Rapid Scan Atmospheric Motion Vectors - MSG

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, combined into one product. The same algorithm as for the Full Earth Scanning AMV product is used, but the area is limited to north of 35 degrees N. As the RSS image scanning frequency is only 5 minutes, the Final vector is a 15 minutes average of three 5 minutes vector components. A RSS AMV product contain between 1000 and 1500 vectors depending of the time of the day, and uses SEVERI image data from Meteosat-8 and onwards. It's the aim to extend both the area and the amount of channels when hardware resources has been made available.
