DMINT - Deep Multispectral INtensity of TCs estimator (formerly DeepMultiNet)

D-MINT is neural network applied to GEO IR imagery and LEO passive microwave (MW) imagery, along with selected environmental variables to estimate TC intensity (max sustained 1-min. 10-m wind, MSW).

D-MINT operates in real-time for every available LEO MW overpass from SSMI-S, AMSR-2, and GMI, when the overpass covers at least 65% of the TC in the image and the corresponding IR imagery is available. Given the latency of MW data, D-MINT is usually processed and its output available 1-3h after the LEO overpass time.
