Your source for archived weather imagery
We have an archive of Meteosat 9 images in the visible, water vapour (WV) and 2 infrared (IR) bands. Imagery may be viewed via our satellite animation image viewer.
The European EUMETSAT-9 Meteosat geostationary weather satellite is located 35,800 km (22,300 statute miles) above the equator at 0°E , just west of Africa. This second generation EUMETSAT satellite was previously known as MSG-2 and became operational in 2005. It provides coverage of Europe, Africa, the Middle East, eastern portions of South America and the Atlantic Ocean and western portions Indian Ocean. The standard mode of operation is full-disk imagery in 12 spectral channels every 15 minutes.
The following Meteosat-9 spectral band images are available in our archive.
|SEVIRI Band||Visible||Water Vapour||IR 3.9||IR 10.8|
|Spectral wavelength||0.6µm||6.2 µm||3.90 µm||10.8 µm|
International Weather Archive maintains an archive of images that go back 2 months. Our image data interval is every 3 hours. The North sector (Europe and Northwest Africa) interval is hourly. 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.
