Coastal upwelling and mesoscale winds are studied using daily 25 km NOAA SST data [47], 25 km J-OFURO reanalysis [48], satellite scatterometer measurements from QuikSCAT and ASCAT, and 4 km Meteosat infrared imagery.
In the 1960s, the satellite revolution provided a quantum leap in weather forecasting providing a bird's-eye of how the atmosphere moves and in 1977 the first European weather satellite, Meteosat 1, was launched - once again pushing forward the boundaries of meteorology.
Data from Meteosat second generation, a geostationary weather satellite, and SPOT, which provides data on vegetation, are available throughout Africa on free receiving stations provided by the European Union.
