The animation shows a huge convective precipitation cell crossing France during the night of the 26 and 27 July 2013. The precipitation rain-rate (mm/hr) is retrieved by combining the infrared brightness temperature derived from the SEVIRI instrument onboard Meteosat-10 satellite and the passive microwave data coming from the SSMIS instrument on board the polar orbiting satellite DMSP F16.

En francais:

L’animation montre une énorme cellule convective traversant la France dans la nuit entre le 26 et le 27 juillet 2013. Le taux de précipitaion (mm/hr)est retrouvé en combinant des mesures de température de brillance infrarouge obtenues a partir du radiometre SEVIRI à bord du satellite Meteosat-10 et de mesures micro-ondes obtenues à partir de l’instrument SSMIS installé à bord du satellite polaire DMSP F16.
