East Pacific 2012 Hurricane Season

In the frame of the SMOS+STORM Evolution project we are processing SMOS data to systematically generate wind speed products intercepting TC and ETC over the mission timelife: 2010-now. We are building-up a dedicated SMOS-Storm catalog (STORM-DB) with a storm user interface which will provide with the dataset publication on the dedicated web site and ftp servers.

The below animation is showing SMOS retrieved wind speeds along all Tropical cyclones reported in the East Pacific in 2012. The storm tracks were obtained from the International Best Track Archive for Climate Stewardship (IBTrACS) database of NOAA. Click on the image to see a full screen view.
