Simulated images - Infrared channel

Base Time: Tue 02 Mar 2021 12 UTC T+0 Valid time: Tue 02 Mar 2021 12 UTC

Simulated Forecast Image products (SIM) are based on the sensor characteristics of the Meteosat-10 satellite. They are generated from the model forecast fields using the same radiative transfer algorithm (RTTOV) as in the ECMWF operational data assimilation. The forecast brightness temperature is used to produce pictures equivalent to the infra-red images available from geostationary satellites.

High resolution forecast Mean sea level pressure contours are overlaid to aid the interpretation.
