Sorry for the bad news but heavy rain showers are again predicted for Usingen this evening/early night !

http://www.niederschlagsradar.de/h.aspx?regio=fri&;srt=bild&j=2010&m=06&d=11&uhr=00&mi=15

I have not compared with statistics from previous summers but could the increased severity /frequency of these rain fades be a result of Global Warming ?

Good night,
Arne van Belle

NorthEast of "Bad Homburg vor Der Hohe" )

This could cause interruption of the uplink.
In the Netherlands we had severe rain fades this week.

Subject: [MSG-1] MODIS Iceland image query

It's good to see the MODIS images coming in again.

I was looking at the latest one covering Iceland (very clear) and it
reminded me that for some times I have seen large areas appearing
much darker than the surroundings. I was just wondering if this
could still relate to a covering of ash from the volcanic eruption?
I wonder what others think - the wind direction did at times carry
the cloud further east and north.

Cheers

Thanks Douglas,

I guess that is more or less a confirmation then. I monitor the earthquakes most days - the whole area seems susceptible to tremors of a 1-2 on their scale.

I'll see if I have any saved images from before to compare.

Re: Data Loss

I see there has been some data loss at approx. 9.10 / 9.15 UTC with losses
on Met-9 / RSS and AVHRR.

Ian.
Same here, Ian. No missed packets, though, so something higher up the chain. No notice of any work today, I believe.

Thanks for the confirmation Ian,

As it happens I was changing some settings when it occurred and I assumed it was my fault!

Re: Missing MODIS

James and others I note the following information from NOAA which may
explain the outage.

''ESPC is not receiving any MODIS, AIRS
and AMSR-E data. The NANUK server has crashed at
Goddard. The server will not be available until Monday morning.''

Regards
Douglas.
I saw that note, Douglas, but didn't connect it. Mind you, to me ESPC is the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre! Quite a time for a server to be out....

Seems we had our own incident around 16:00 with, I suspect, bad weather over Usingen causing a Europe-wide outage. I managed to get Windows updates done on my main PC just before the signal came back.

See:

I've reported this to the dissemination team at EUMETSAT. Someone could report it to Ops, if they wish. A noticeable drop in throughput:

Re: Data channel 1 connecting

Ian Deans
 

David,

Data channel 1 is the EARS channel. Can you confirm if the EARS data is still coming in even although Channel 1 is showing connecting.

The reason I am asking is that I have seen this scenario before where the same channel can be active ( data coming in as viewed in Tellique HTML) but also have that channel showing as connecting. I take DWDSAT data and I have seen four DWDSAT channels showing connecting and a fifth opens with the data. This may be what you are seeing happening.

Regards
Ian.

For some reason, although data channels 2,3,4,5,6,10. are active,
Data channel 1 is showing connecting for some period of time.

Any suggestions as to this welcomed.,
