Earth Observation Live



hdev logo.jpg



The RSRG is proud to present the HDEV live stream. It shows live videos from the ISS of our Earth. HDEV (High Definition Earth Viewing) is a NASA mission dealing with commercial off-the-shelf cameras in space. The experiment's exclusive European partner is Columbus Eye. The project is carried out at the University of Bonn and sponsored by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Space Administration. The main goal of Columbus Eye is to enable children to observe our planet from the Astronaut's perspective while applying professional remote sensing analysis tools.



Meteosat - natural color



The MeteoViewer is an interactive tool displaying current images of the European weather satellite Meteosat-10 (MSG). Due to its particularly high temporal resolution, every 15 minutes the satellite transmits images that are being put together to film sequences in MeteoViewer.



Meteosat - airmass




In this version of the MeteoViewer, we encounter images with very unusual colour combinations. The offsetting and the combination of different infrared views of the European weather satellite Meteosat-10 (MSG) result in the development of images in which air masses can be distinguished based on their colour. Thus, subtropical, warm and humid air masses are green while polar, cold and dry air is depicted in different shades of blue. In taking a look at the moving images of the MeteoViewer, the development of lows or the position of the jet stream can be easily understood.
