Nepartak Rapid Scan Loop

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Can you spot the gravity waves in this stunning loop of Nepartak from the Himawari 8 Satellite?

Click the image to load the loop from Today (Thursday).


This loop will take some time to load. Note the gravity waves spreading out from the center.

Transverse cirrus bands are also visible in the image above, and these are indicative of severe turbulence. More on that from the CIMMS Satellite Blog.

James Reynolds has video and images of the storm here.
