Synergy Storm

This Atlantic Ocean storm, south to Greenland, has been caught both by S1-B and S3-A on December 6th and 7th. Here below the S1-SAR image in interferometric wide swath mode, followed by S3-OLCI RGB (bands 10-6-3) and S3-SLSTR thermal (band 9) images.

The OLCI image is the last of the duty cycle, before the eclipse period, indeed the brightness fade out before the darkness is evident.

The scale of the thermal image is expressed in kelvin. The temperature profile follows the hurricane outline, highlighting the eye of the storm with a temperature decrease from outside and inside the storm itself.
