Quick Guides on standard SEVIRI RGB types

Quick Guides on standard SEVIRI RGB types

Online, EUMeTrain

Eleven Quick Guides on EUMETSAT-recommended standard SEVIRI RGB types, such as the Dust RGB, the Airmass RGB and the Day Microphysical RGB, have recently been published.

For each standard SEVIRI RGB, a clearly arranged two-page guide has been created, including the most important information about the purpose of the RGB type, area and time for its main application, and the physical background of the used channel combinations, together with many examples helping to interpret the typical colours.

The aim of the Quick Guides is to help the users (weather forecasters and/or other experts) to understand the physical principles behind each RGB and to show the use of these RGB types by giving typical examples and interpretations.

The RGB Quick Guides can be downloaded from the EUMeTrain website. They can be printed (A4 size) or just be viewed online.
