D-PRINT - DeeP IR INtensity of TCs (formerly OPEN-AIIR)

D-PRINT is neural network applied to GEO IR imagery, along with selected environmental variables to estimate TC intensity (max sustained 1-min. 10-m wind, MSW). D-PRINT is the same architecture as D-MINT, but it does not include any MW imagery. As a result, D-PRINT is slightly less skillful than D-MINT but provides continuous intensity estimates.

D-PRINT operates in real-time at the top of every hour, assuming at least 90% of the TC in the image is covered and environmental predictors are available. D-PRINT has a latency of about 30 minutes after the top of the hour.
