scan a full Earth disk at 10-min intervals. The spatial resolution is also enhanced to 0.5 km for band 3 in the visible wavelength, and the two other visible bands and band 4 in the near-infrared have 1-km resolution. Two other near-infrared bands and all infrared bands have a spatial resolution of 2 km. The infrared band 11 is used for detection of thin ice cloud such as is often found at the edge of the TC cirrus outflow, and infrared band 16 is used for cloud-top height assignment. The three

-Depression Investigation of Cloud-systems in the Tropics (PREDICT; Montgomery et al. 2012 ), have been conducted to obtain observations within various environments during the TC life cycle. These data have proven to be useful for understanding TC intensity changes. For instance, observational studies and model–observation comparisons based on these field campaigns (e.g., Black et al. 2002 ; Rogers et al. 2003 ; Houze et al. 2006 ; Jaimes et al. 2015 ) further proved the importance of vertical wind shear and sea
