Geostationary Satellite
  • All maps are to be used solely for displaying meteorological/geophysical information, and not for any other purpose. All maps are not to scale and for illustrative purpose only.
  • These satellite images are processed from the Himawari series geostationary satellites operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency.
  • Each image is created from a combination of selected infrared and visible spectral bands of Himawari satellite data. For the non-sunlit areas of the image, a greyscale thermal infrared imagery is used. The resulting true-colour image closely resembles a visible colour photograph.
