Operational Significant Event Imagery (OSEI) High-resolution, detailed imagery of significant environmental events which are visible in remotely-sensed data. Images were produced until July 2010 before the daily production was passed to the NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory (EVL) on August 1, 2010. A representative sample of the imagery generated is maintained.

Saved Tropical Imagery Over the years we've occasionally saved images and loops of Tropical Storms, Hurricanes and Typhoons that have become newsworthy. These images, and any loops or movies generated, are primarily from saved regular website images.

Saved Tropical Imagery:
       Hurricanes of 2005
       Hurricane Sandy  (October, 2012)
       Super Typhoon Haiyan  (November, 2013)
