2021: A Year of Weather via Earth Satellites | EUMETSAT

2021: A Year of Weather | EUMETSAT

Our annual year of weather visualization rounds up the planet’s weather in just under 10 minutes. With narration from EUMETSAT’s Training Manager, Mark Higgins, we have highlighted the major storms across the globe and provided detail on what you can see from space.

Major storms are labelled from light yellow to red depending on their intensity.

We could not produce this video without the help of our international partners. This high resolution visualization was produced by EUMETSAT’s digital media team and is composed of cloud imagery provided by Météo-France, which is superimposed over NASA's 'Blue Marble Next Generation' ground maps and changes with the seasons.

It also displays imagery from the geostationary satellites of EUMETSAT, the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the US, the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) and the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA). Merging our data, we are able to get these very comprehensive views of the entire planet.

For more information on the satellites we operate and what we measure from space, visit the EUMETSAT website at:

The European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) is an intergovernmental organization created through an international convention agreed by a current total of 30 European Member States.

EUMETSAT's primary objective is to establish, maintain and exploit European systems of operational meteorological satellites. EUMETSAT is responsible for the launch and operation of the satellites and for delivering satellite data to end-users as well as contributing to the operational monitoring of climate and the detection of global climate changes.
