Cool Timelapse Animation: Super Typhoon Megi

#MEGI – This timelapse uses false colour infrared imagery from JMA’s MTSAT geostationary satellite to track the path of Super Typhoon Megi forming and travelling across the north of the Philippines, and fading out over China between October 10th to the 24th, 2010.

When sped up it shows just how typhoons/hurricanes/cyclones have a mind of their own.  This storm ended up making landfall in China where originally just one computer model, out of dozens, predicted it would go.

We are working on them – we are currently in talks with a data provider – so hang in there!  Apologies it’s taken forever… back the recession really knocked us back a year or so.
