Re: Iceberg A-68A Dec. 21.

Hi,

here is a last SAR view of iceberg A68a and its child (d?). We had two 6 day series so far:

Images of A68a only: 2020.12.01 B / 2020.12.07 A / 2020.12.13 B / 2020.12.19 A (ascending)
A68a and S. Georgia: 2020.12.03 A / 2020.12.09 B / 2020.12.15 A / 2020.12.21 B (descending)

Not sure how long it takes now to enter a next Sentinel-1 SAR series of A68a only images.
It looks like the crash with the South Georgia shell opened an oil well :-). Any explanation?

Cheers,
Ernst

Hello,

the image from Sentinel-3 has also a clear (almost) view on A68-A

All,

A couple of Metop false colour images from today.

Lucky with cloud again.

Hello Ferdinand,

Yes indeed, your images of the ocean floor around South Georgia some days ago threw new light on the icebergs possible/probable movement in the vicinity of land.

And yes, it's interesting and a privilege to have access to the 'eyes in the sky' in real time.

Best wishes,
John.

John,
 
As indicated in an earlier message, the ocean floor profile and the in-locu current most likely drives it south around South Georgia  and then up northeast. However, the radar image of today shows many tears in the ice and as yet it is impossible to estimate how deep these go. So it may drift around or it may disintegrate or break up before it reaches east.
In any case, nice to see things unfolding in real time.

Where will it go next?

I think Paul had the best address. I have tried others as well but had no luck with metoffice.gov.uk (as I had scripting in mind). These

if you scroll to the bottom there is an option to use Hi-Res 2147 by 1728 px
Paul

.. and that sounds like the resolution accepted by GeoSatSignal, and sent over EUMETCast.

All,

O.K. here is the one from today:

Does anybody know what kind of map projection they use?

There's a higher resolution "Bracknell" chart as part of the EUMETCast stream, or there used to be. GeoSatSignal knows about it.

Bracknell over DWDSAT - e.g. fx401-egrr_bwk_nt_p_000_000-0906070600-afsv.tiff and at least two other variants!

I suggest asking DWD or Ops.

David

Hi Francis,

the last Bracknell chart I have received is 18:00 UTC on the 19th - (yesterday) nothing today so the same problem here !

Francis I have also been downloading from http://old.wetterzentrale.de/pics/bracka.gif for a very long time. But today I got ‘This site can’t be reached’. May just be a weekend glitch – unless you’ve had problems for longer. I’ll try again tomorrow.
