Re: Pytroll/SatPy for EUMETCast

OK, I’ll try to post via wetransfer directly to the Group.

Here is a (reduced) version of S1B with changed viewing area


True, those hires views have a very limited coverage. We are fortunate that the event takes place at this latitude; the number of passes that see the area is so much higher than at the equator...

As I understand it you can let the link be e-mailed to (one of ) your address(es) and then post it or it can be sent directly to the MSG-1 list (?). It seems everybody knowing the link can download.

Yes the higher the resolution the lower a chance you have a good pass. You can use both Sentinel-1A/1B. Swath in SAR EW mode (as normally used in marine environments) is 410km only.


A godd thing in my script is that you can easily adjust the area (lat_0 and lon_0) to get as much of the segment at hand as possible. Nice to see your Pytroll/Satpy progress ...
