1 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 APPLICATIONS OF METEOSAT SECOND GENERATION (MSG) RGB IMAGES: PART 05 RGB COMPOSITES WITH CHANNEL 12 AND THEIR INTERPRETATION Author:Jochen Kerkmann (EUMETSAT)

2 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 PART 5: RED-GREEN-BLUE COLOUR COMPOSITES WITH CHANNEL 12 (HRV) AND THEIR INTERPRETATION

3 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 In order to preserve the high resolution of the HRV channel, it should be assigned to 2 colours The HRV has a three times higher resolution than the other channels, i.e. a zoom factor of 3 is needed for the IR channels RGBs with the HRV Channel: Introduction

4 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 Recommended Schemes for RGB Image Composites with Channel 12 (HRV) RGB CompositeApplicationsTime RGB 12,12,09i:Clouds, ConvectionDay RGB 03,12,12:Snow, FogDay RGB 12,12,04-09:Severe StormsDay

5 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 R = Channel 12 (HRV) G = Channel 12 (HRV) B = Channel 09i (IR10.8i) 1. RGB 12,12,09i ("HRV Clouds") (similar to traditional NOAA AVHRR 1,2,4) Applications: Clouds, Convection

9 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 Comparison HRV vs RGB 12,12,09i MSG-1, 13 June 2003, 14:00 UTC The RGB 12,12,09i helps to detect thin Ci clouds and to distinguish between thick Cb clouds and Ci anvils

10 Version 1.0, 30 June 2004 R = Channel 03 (NIR1.6) G = Channel 12 (HRV) B = Channel 12 (HRV) 2. RGB 03,12,12 ("HRV Fog") Applications: Snow, Fog
