Re: Pytroll/SatPy for EUMETCast

When I compare the 3a series with the ones from 3B at least a useful combination is possible with some remaining tracts of black. If a canvas of broken white is selected in the image creation, a movie may result that is less disturbing than flashes of black.

Must be a very special event if this huge chunk of ice meets with the island!

Ferdinand and All

Movies are possible with Metop-A/B/C and GOES-16. Sentinel-3A + Sentinel-3B hand combined will give the highest
resolution animations (OLCI has 300m IFV at SSP) but at the downside of some black corners (all 1 frame per day!).


Landfall of iceberg A68 to South Georgia seems to be around Christmas 2020, maybe even somewhat earlier (estimated from above images).
