2 The data rendering is done to maximize the similarity between day and night color interpretation of clouds, using RGB composite for the following cloud properties: Red: Cloud depth and amount of cloud water and ice. Day: Visible reflectance at 0.6  m. Night: Optical depth, approximated by  m channels. Green: Cloud particle size and phase. Day: Approximated by 1.6  m or 3.9  m solar reflectance component. Night: Approximated by 10.8 –3.9  m brightness temperature. Blue: Temperature is provided by 10.8  m day and night. Linked to: using MSG channels
