Your source for archived weather imagery
We have an archive of Meteosat 7 images in the visible, water vapour (WV) and infrared (IR) bands. Imagery may be viewed via our satellite animation image viewer.
The European EUMETSAT-7 Meteosat geostationary weather satellite is located 35,800 km (22,300 statute miles) above the equator at 57°E over the Indian Ocean. This first generation EUMETSAT satellite became operational in 1997 and currently provides coverage of eastern portions of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Indian Ocean. The standard mode of operation is full-disk imagery in 3 channels every half-hour.
|MVIRI Band||Visible||Water Vapour||IR|
|Spectral range||0.45 - 1.0 µm||5.7 - 7.1 µm||10.5 - 12.5 µm|
International Weather Archive maintains an archive of images that go back 2 months. Our image data interval is every 3 hours. Please note however, that due to EUMETSAT usage policies, the time interval between images that are within the last 24 hours is 6 hours.
We have full disk, as well as sector images. The sectors are arranged in a 3 x 3 grid as shown in the following diagram.
