(MPE) showing near real time rain rates. By special sensor Microwave/Imager (US-DMSP satellites) are combined with a special blending technique of brightness temperatures from the infrared channel (Meteosat satellite).

Madagascar WV 6.2 Water Vapour Black White Indian Ocean Satellite Thumbnail Image
WV Water Vapour 6.2 Black & White

Main Monitoring: Water vapor, high level clouds, upper air analysis. The WV (Water Vapour) 6.2 Channel reflects moisture content in the upper troposphere. Used for, to infer possible local atmospheric instability which might lead to convection and severe storms.
