  Morphed Integrated Microwave Imagery (MIMIC-TPW)

Please wait for about 3.3MB of the imagery data set to download ...

In MIMIC-TPW, a data-blending technique combines disparate swaths of microwave observations from polar orbiting satellites in order to create near-seamless animations of advecting radiance features. This imagery highlights the atmospheric rivers that drive weather across the globe. Weather downloads the last three days of MIMIC-TPW imagery from CIMSS servers at the University of Wisconsin. Since these files are large, we processed the gif images down to a decreased quality jpg image which conserves file size with about a 63% reduction, and improves download experience though with some loss of details. Nearly 9MB of the imagery data set is reduced to about 3.3MB. The imagery is updated at midnight, 6am, 12pm and 6pm Pacific Time. So it you get partial images at one of those times, please wait couple minutes and refresh the page.

You can select the animation speed from the slider. The Show buttom allows to open a new window that has the image file currently in the viewer. The Zoom buttom allows to zoom up on a portion of the image while allowing panning during animation. The Rock buttom allows the animation loop to go forward and backward. Hit the Refresh buttom to check for any new image files.
