GRIP METEOSAT SECOND GENERATION (MSG) IMAGE DATA V1Entry ID: gripmsg
Abstract: The GRIP Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) data and browse was collected during the Genesis and Rapid Intensification Processes (GRIP) experiment from 15 Aug 2010 to 30 Sep 2010. Infrared and visible radiances, and water vapor were collected. Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) consists of a series of four geostationary meteorological satellites, along with ground-based infrastructure, that will ... operate consecutively until 2020. The MSG system is established under cooperation between The European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and the European Space Agency (ESA) to ensure the continuity of meteorological observations from geostationary orbit. The MSG satellites carry an impressive pair of instruments, the Spinning Enhanced Visible and InfraRed Imager (SEVIRI), which has the capacity to observe the Earth in 12 spectral channels and provide image data which is core to operational forecasting needs, and the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instrument supporting climate studies.
