  Link   Description  
  MSG PRODUCTS AMV   The Atmospheric Motion Vectors (AMV) product consists wind vectors computed at differend heights derived by tracking the motion of the clouds and other atmospheric constituents (e.g. water vapour patterns and ozone). In this example, the wind vectors are derived IR 10.8 images.  
  MSG PRODUCTS MPE   The Multi-Sensor Precipitation Estimate (MPE) product consists of the near-real-time rain rates in mm/hr for each Meteosat image in original pixel resolution. The algorithm is based on the combination of polar orbiter microwave measurements and images in the Meteosat IR channel by a so-called blending technique. The MPE is most suitable for convective precipitation. Applications and Users: Operational weather forecasting in areas with poor or no radar coverage, especially in Africa and Asia.  
  MSG PRODUCTS FIR   The active fire monitoring product (FIR) is a fire detection product indicating the presence of fire within a pixel. The underlying concept of the algorithm takes advantage of the fact that SEVIRI channel IR3.9 is very sensitive to hot spots which are caused by fires. The algorithm distinguishes between potential fire and active fire. Applications and Users: Fire detection and monitoring.  
  MSG PRODUCTS GII   The Global Instability Index (GII) represents the atmospheric air mass instability in cloud free areas. The original statistical algorithm was developed by the SAF in support of Nowcasting and Very Short Range Forecasting but the GII is produced at EUMETSAT. The algorithm has later been replaced by a physical retrieval scheme. Applications and Users: Nowcasting (forecasting up to six hours) severe weather.  
  MSG PRODUCTS CLA   The Cloud Analysis (CLA) Product provides an identification of cloud layers with cloud type and coverage, height and temperature. Applications and Users: Weather forecasting, numerical weather prediction, climate research and monitoring.  
  MSG PRODUCTS CLAI   The Cloud Analysis Image (CLAI) provides an identification of scenes type for each image segment. This is an image product derived along with CLA. Applications and Users: Weather forecasting, numerical weather prediction, climate research and monitoring. This is an image product derived along with CLA.  
  MSG PRODUCTS CLM   The Cloud Mask (CLM) product describes the scene type (either clear or cloudy) on a pixel level. Each pixel is classified as one of the following four types: clear sky over water, clear sky over land, cloud or not processed (off Earth disc). Applications and Users: The main use is in support of Nowcasting applications, where it frequently serves as a basis for other cloud products, and the remote sensing of continental and ocean surfaces.  
  MSG PRODUCTS CTH   The Cloud Top Height (CTH) product indicates the height of highest cloud. Based on a subset of the information derived during Scenes and Cloud Analysis, but also makes use of other external meteorological data. Applications and Users: Aviation meteorology.  
  MSG PRODUCTS TH   The Tropospheric Humidity Product (TH) provides relative humidity in both mid and upper layers of the troposphere, using a 16 x 16 pixel segment grid. The upper level is derived from the mean layer relative humidity between about 600 hPa and 300 hPa using the WV6.2 micron channel, while mid-tropospheric humidity represents the mean value between 850 hPa and 600 hPa using the WV7.3 micron channel
