The main questions facing tropical cyclone (TC) forecasters are accurately determining the current intensity of the storm, the future intensity of the storm, and where the storm will be in the future. Data obtained from satellites are ideal for helping to provide answers to these questions due to their ability to provide nearly constant and total coverage of the tropics in space and time.

Many of the products from CIMSS are developed specifically for use by TC forecasters worldwide to provide unique information in support of their specific TC forecasting missions.
