SUBSATELLITE LONGITUDE AND AVAILABILITY OF 0° SERVICE (FULL DISC AND RAPID SCAN)
The following chart shows the periods of activity of the satellites, and how they overlap with each other. Note the variations of the re-projected sub-satellite points when changing from Full Scanning to Rapid Scanning mode and vice-versa (e.g. Met-8 in Dec 2008).
- Click on the points to get detailed information on a satellite status at a particular date, such as the disposition flag (OPE, COM).
- Zoom in/out using the mouse wheel to increase/decrease time resolution.
- Pan left/right to move along the time axis without changing the viewing scale.
