Quick Guides on standard SEVIRI RGB types

Quick Guides on standard SEVIRI RGB types

Middle of 2017 / Online module

New Quick Guides on EUMETSAT-recommended standard SEVIRI RGB types are being published in the coming months.

For each standard SEVIRI RGB type a two-page guide is being created with the most important information:

  • The aim of the RGB type
  • Area and time period of its main applications
  • Guidelines
  • Physical background
  • Benefits and limitations
  • Examples of interpretation with typical colours
  • Comparison to other products
  • Useful links


The aim of the Quick Guides is to help the users (weather forecasters and/or other experts) to understand and use these RGB types by giving them the most relevant background information and examples of interpretations.

They will be available from the EUMeTrain website.
