Concept of ePort
ePort uses the technical basis of Visual Weather © developed by IBL. It allows you to combine a range of EUMETSAT provided satellite data with satellite derived products and numerical model fields.
All images generated are stored in an archive which makes it possible for you to do a qualitative research.
Contains forecast data from ECMWF IFS model: 6-hour forecast data for 00, 06, 12, 18 UTC and 9-hour forecast data for 03, 09, 15, 21 UTC.
Resolution of the global model fields: 0.5° x 0.5°
Temporal frequency of images: 3-hourly
The resolution of satellite images (at nadir): depends on the used instrument - GOES ABI: 1km VIS, 0.5 km 0.6 μm band, 2km IR; MSG SEVIRI: 3km, 1km HRV; Himawari AHI: same as GOES.
The ePort Pro
ePort PRO is the more powerful of the two versions of the platform. It contains images and products from geostationary satellites (GOES, MSG and Himawari) and ECMWF model fields, including vertical cross sections and model sounding data.
