General description

 

4

What data/products do you currently use ?

Hurricane tracks, radius, central pressure, maximum sustained wind speed, and sea level

5

When do you use this kind of dataset?

These extreme event data are useful to estimate the risk on a given area.

6

What are your actual limitations and do you have a work around? 

It is not possible to study a located phenomenon with satellite data.

7

Needs and expectations on EO data

More frequent sampling such as Eumetsat: geostationary dataset for squalls prediction in west Africa (10 minutes revisit time).

Quickscat missed hurricanes too.
