Beautiful picture Ferdinand,

South Sandwich Islands cloud formations.

geojohnt@...
 

All,

Whilst tracking iceberg A-68A via Metop images, there has been some good imaging of herring bone cloud formations caused by the South Sandwich Islands and south westerly winds.
This is quite a frequent event it seems.

Yesterdays image, also A-68A's finger is visible to the left.

Regards,
John.


Re: A68 and currents

geojohnt@...
 

Hello Ferdinand,

Brilliant.
And it confirms the cloudy Metop image from yesterday that the finger - and everything, is rotating.
There appear to have been strong winds blowing from the south west for several days now judging by nearby island cloud formations.

Regards,
John.

Yesterday's sar image nicely shows the configuration of broken pieces and
the crack in the middle of the main chunk. What comes out very well in this
image is the general flow of the currents south of South Georgia and thus
the most likely course of the collection of A68 pieces. The image is 4k
square, hence quite detailed.

Maybe David is the one who could describe it much better and more quick.


I think you need MapToGeo 


too… and then use the background mode in GSS (Thermal channel on top of background)

I'll have a look at the weekend additional.

if you are on Windows with Davids Toolset (GeoSatSignal), you could do that without problems. 
You can do that with Pytroll/Satpy too, but it's a little bit tricky and you have to do your own composite. 
See pics (Win/D.Taylor GSS and Pytroll/Satpy)

Daniele,

if you have all Meteosat-11 seviri  channels decompressed at hand that's the list Pytroll/Satpy offers as possible composites. I just attach two of them as images below. Projection type and area can be choosen as well.

['airmass', 'ash', 'cloudtop', 'cloudtop_daytime', 'colorized_ir_clouds', 'convection', 'day_microphysics', 'day_microphysics_winter', 'dust', 'fog', 'green_snow', 'hrv_clouds', 'hrv_fog', 'hrv_severe_storms', 'hrv_severe_storms_masked', 'ir108_3d', 'ir_cloud_day', 'ir_overview', 'ir_sandwich', 'natural_color', 'natural_color_nocorr', 'natural_color_raw', 'natural_color_with_night_ir', 'natural_color_with_night_ir_hires', 'natural_enh', 'natural_with_night_fog', 'night_fog', 'night_ir_alpha', 'night_ir_with_background', 'night_ir_with_background_hires', 'night_microphysics', 'overview', 'overview_raw', 'realistic_colors', 'snow', 'vis_sharpened_ir']




Cheers,
Ernst

P.S. Adding your own composites and enhancements as well as background with Blue- or Black-Marble is possible for rather advanced users ...

EUMETSAT updated their website recently and here is the link to the new Channels and PID lists.

Re: Tips to get MSG image result

Hi Daniele,

This is an infrared picture of the clouds with, as a background, an image of landmass.  For example an equirectangular map like the one you use in EUMETCastView.
For the moment it is not possible to generate such a map in EUMETCastView but in Pytroll it is certainly possible... although some programming is required ...

grts,

Hugo

A-68A movements Dec. 28th.

All,

I'm not sure if the 'finger' hasn't moved round the iceberg and is now north of it?

Today's Metop image is rather cloudy.
We need a radar image.

Re: Help to Restart

Philip Robinson
 

Hi
I am not the best at setting systems up but i will say
I have some of Davids excellent software. I have a 1 metre dish, ayecka sr1, eku, ssd laptop and windows10 and i enjoy wonderful images etc.. I live in Derbyshire. This was all set back up again( after a time for me out of action) about 18 months ago and soon was working perfectly.
I had a lot of help setting up again from David and several others on here. Unfortunately i am  not the most practical person so not the best person on here to ask for help.
I was surprised though when somebody replied to your advice  about setting up again  with the comment. " Why?"

Go for it . Its worth the effort when you can view those lovely images that you work to produce yourself.
regards
Philip

Hi Folks,

First of all Merry Christmas to all.

I have been off for a couple of years and would like to restart again but

I cannot remember what I need from the last time.

I have already a Dish with LNB.

I already have the EKU key and also I have the SR1 unit.

I do not remember ho to set all and if they have been any changes from my last reception.

I have also David’s programs maybe not updated at the latest versions

I do not know if I need more or different programs.

Is there anybody so kind and available to help me to get all up again?

Thanks a lot and again Merry Christmas and an Happy 2021 to everyone

Re: A-68A turning again.

Ferdinand Valk
 

Ernst,

 

The Single Look Strip Map files have a 20x20 m resolution and come in files of up to 8GB tarred. Most likely that will be out of the capacity of most ‘normal’ user systems.

 

There is some info here

Wave SLC - Sentinel-1 SAR Technical Guide - Sentinel Online (esa.int)

And of course also the EW and IW version, but they are more for land use (agriculture, earthquake features, floods etc.)

 

Have a good evening.

Ferdinand

P.S. How big are these Sentinel-1 sar SM files. Do you have something interesting at hand?

Ferdinand,

the best thing would be to convince the Satpy developers to come up with a consistant sar composite naming and maybe to add single channel composites.
I don't think I'll add this kind of sar-c stuff to a version 2.0. It's still a starter kit and as demonstrated some people need 30 posts to get one line of text right :-\.

Regards,
Ernst

Re: A-68A turning again.

Ferdinand Valk
 

Ernst,

 

Yes I gathered that much. A lookup table could indeed be an option but as far as I’m concerned that is for a later date. Single channel in b&w is quite acceptable for now.

It seems to me that standardization of names in the sar.yaml file really is important while sharing within the community. I had come up with things such as ‘landv’ in my personalized sar file, but you wouldn’t immediately have understood what it stood for had I shared it. Given your efforts to come up with a how-to v2, it is best if you define and communicate the naming to be used.

 

Thanks for all your thoughts and efforts.

Ferdinand

 

//snip

we should stay with BW. If we want color we could add something of a LUT like colored ir clouds :-). I will rename my sar composites (eventually?) adding an x:

'sar-ice-hx' for files containing hh + hv
'sar-ice-vx' for files containing vv + vh
etc....
'sar-hh-bw' and inverted 'sar-hh-wb' as before for files with hh only.
etc.

Cheers,
Ernst
