Remote Sensing Resources

General Sites Featuring Multi-Platform Satellite Imagery

  • NRL TC Portal - excellent resource from the Naval Research Lab--Monterey: features visible, IR, passive microwave, scatterometery, etc.
  • UW/CIMSS/SSEC TC Portal - features ability to overlay satellite imagery and various derived quantities such as satellite-derived wind shear and convergence on top of model tracks
  • NESDIS TC Products - features floater imagery for all global TC basins, as well as additional satellite-derived TC products

Satellite-based Intensity Estimates

Historical Tracks

  • Unisys Weather - features track plots for historical storms for global basins (back to 1851 for North Atlantic, 1945 for Western Pacific and South Indian Ocean, 1949 for Eastern Pacific)
  • NOAA Climate Services Track Generator - generate historical TC tracks with Google Maps
