Operational use of RGBs (part 2)

Operational use of RGBs (part 2)

February 2016 / Online

A new training module was published recently on four SEVIRI RGB types: HRV Fog RGB, Snow RGB, Night Microphysics RGB and Ash RGB.

These are those EUMETSAT– recommended standard SEVIRI RGB types, which were not discussed in the’ ‘Operational use of RGB’s training module published several years ago.

The main aim of the training module is to help the users (weather forecasters and/or other experts) to understand and use these RGB types, by giving them background information, examples and exercises.

The logical structure of the discussion is the following:

  • The aim of the RGB type
  • Physical background
  • How to create the given RGB type
  • Typical colours
  • Examples of interpretations
  • Benefits and limitations
  • Comparisons with other RGB types and/or single channel images
  • Exercise
