NOTES:
    - The areas where sectors overlap are shaded in gray and are not clickable.
    - The surface winds are from a scatterometer (ASCAT) on a polar-orbiting satellite and have swath gaps in the data. Winds cannot be retrieved over land.
    - The surface vorticity is derived from the winds so also has gaps. Only cyclonic values above a given threshold are contoured.
    - Always check the date/time printed on images, they may not always be current!
