Typhoons are usually generated over tropical ocean areas far south of Japan.
An important role of MTSAT is to monitor typhoon; it provides precious
obserbation data on such phenomena over the ocean, where ground-based observations
are limited. MTSAT continuously monitors the generation, movement (direction
and speed) and intensity of typhoons.
The animation shows an imagery of typhoon NABI (0514) captured by MTSAT.
