Collated EUMETSAT European monthly weather videos


Image from the cold March 2013.

If you are new to these videos expect a revealation, how air moves, clouds stream, bubble.

Clouds are sometimes on seveal levels moving in different directions: we are looking through circulation cells from above, warm air travelling to the Arctic to shed heat and cold air spilling back on it’s journey towards the equator.

Here is the EUMETSAT English web home page and a link to the image library which links to some of the YouTube videos, plus a large number of other videos. Stills are elsewhere.

I have collated all the available Euro weather videos in one place.

The host servers are Google YouTube. I have set it to not display related content at the end and a link does not open a new tab/window.
[update] I forgot to include the URL of the EUMETSAT YouTube account, here is the link
http://www.youtube.com/user/EUMETSAT1 (apologies, fortunately no-one has complained) [/update]

Each video runs for 5 to 10 minutes (player has replay speed change). Are in HD 1280 x 720.

Most of this web page content has been generated by Lua script then uploaded to WordPress.

Suggestions for improvement are welcome but there are practical limitations on what can be done on a blog.

Adding some details about each video both technically (eg. channels) and more importantly features of interest with the time stamp. Right now I don’t know the best way to tag on many pieces of information. Perhaps each video needs it’s own blog page, a large implentation task obstructed by my present lack of workable access to the blog API, automation is needed.

The “alt” YouTube access is for me and anyone else sometimes having trouble with YouTube HTML5 access. Adobe Flash does not work on this computer.

    Pretty amazing to see the air flows and eddies dance. March warrants a few more close viewings to compare against photos I took of the skies. Thank you Tim truly amazing stuff.

    Never ceases to amaze me and yet there is a small part of the earth, perhaps daytime only and all that weather is one low precision data point kidded on as true for all earth.

    Lots of ideas on things to consider. Radiosonde data and met charts are both complementary. Not looked yet but registering with Eumetsat gives access to the data archives so more detail investigation of a feature found in the video is feasible.

    If you could present these videos synchronized by lunar declination, they would show the four repeating patterns in the MPH systems, coming in from the West at each culmination, N&S. Then with mostly zonal flow into the UK as the moon crosses the equator either way. And just after crossing there is an impulse of warm moist air in from the Mediterranean sea/ North Africa.

    The Earth Mars conjunction on March 3rd 2012 shows up as a huge high pressure invasion (post conjunction) into the middle of Russia, Moscow with -18C temps as a result.

    Thanks for posting these loops i have not seen the Europe weather satellite videos before and they confirm the repeating four fold patterns seen over North America and Australia, work for Europe as well.

      At some point I want to get back to this, time-space problem on earth.

      I think the main obstacle for me is never understanding the motions, hits a blindspot where normal explanations don’t work. Always had this problem and is a reason why I usually go do for myself, find a workaround.

      In this case I’ll try a session with Solex, see where the moon located and if I can make any sense of it. I’m aware there are highly complex ocean tidal effects but the atmosphere is very different, broadly there is no gravitational tide as the oceans, is primarily thermal. Even that is full of surprises. Doesn’t follow there is zero gravitational effect or indirect effects.

      If there is an effect it will be in other data but this might need indirect analysis. Synchronous signals ought to be easy to find, except most data is too awful. I’d want sub-daily, rarely available. Most data is decimated improperly, destroying a lot of information.

      The key is finding something definite, a finger hold.
