CIMSS Tropical Cyclones

The Cooperative Institute of Meteorological Satellite Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center (CIMSS-SSEC) has created a huge set of weather related overlays that can be viewed in Google Earth.

Their program is focused on tropical cyclones, but they also have a large amount of satellite and other data covering at the regional and global levels.  The data available in Google Earth includes:

  • Storm tracking and forecast
  • Recent satellite imagery
  • Sea surface conditions
  • Precipitation
  • Maximum wind speeds
  • Winds aloft analysis (wind shear, vorticity, etc.)
  • Satellite animations
  • Global Infrared and Water Vapor mosaics
