MTSAT-1R Hourly Atmospheric Motion Vector Data

This data set contains cloud drift wind data derived from the MTSAT satellites over the T-PARC region. Winds were derived from the water vapor, infrared, shortwave infrared and visible channels. Quality control information is also included. These data were developed by CIMSS. This data set is password protected.
