The Advanced Objective Dvorak Technique (AODT) is a satellite-based algorithm developed at the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (UW-CIMSS) to aid the diagnosis of tropical cyclone (TC) intensity. It was developed as a guidance tool, and the intensity estimates/trends that are output on this web site should be interpreted in this regard, and not considered as part of any official estimate or advisory. Please consult your national TC forecast center for official estimates.
