Cyclone Monitoring Service based on Sentinel-1 expands to other storm events

Since 2016, experts from IFREMER and CLS have developed a new strategy, in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA), in order to observe Tropical Cyclones with Sentinel-1 Copernicus mission. In collaboration with space agencies and meteorological institutes, IFREMER and CLS experts track the paths of cyclones and characterize the associated ocean surface wind speed.  

The power of SAR imagery has now been expanded to provide unprecedented observations of other storm events, typically found over European waters such as Extra-Tropical Cyclones, Medicanes or Polar-Lows. 

On May 5th, 2022 a webinar was proposed to discover the ESA-funded CYMS project and how it can provide strategic information in terms of:
• Risk mitigation
• Storm surge warnings
• Climate Change studies
• Maritime safety
