This visualisation, comprised of imagery from the geostationary satellites of EUMETSAT, NOAA, the CMA and JMA, combined with data from EUMETSAT’s polar orbiting Metop satellites, shows an entire year of weather across the globe throughout 2018, with audio commentary from Mark Higgins, Training Manager at EUMETSAT.
This ultra-high resolution (4k) visualisation has been produced by EUMETSAT’s data visualisation team and is composed of a satellite infrared data layer, provided by MeteoFrance, superimposed over NASA’s ‘Blue Marble Next Generation’ ground maps, which change with the seasons.
