Weather phenomena and processes can be derived from cloud formations in images recorded by weather satellites in the visible and spectral range if one is able to interpret them correctly. This is very important for aviation. Current weather conditions have an impact on travel comfort and flight safety, especially thunderstorms, squall lines, lee waves, jet streams and fog. It is therefore necessary to obtain precise knowledge of weather processes and their intensity.
The publication provides information in two volumes on how to interpret the satellite images with regard to the above-mentioned weather phenomena. While the first volume is dedicated to small-scale meteorological phenomena, the second volume deals with large-scale ones. The various weather phenomena are explained using satellite images, which are compared with the corresponding weather map section. Special phenomena are explained in detail using drawings.
