About Band 6

2.2 µm - "Cloud Particle Size" Band - 2 km resolution - in conjunction with other bands, Band 6 will enable cloud particle size estimation. Cloud particle growth is an indication of cloud development and intensity of that development. Other applications include: use in aerosol particle size estimation, cloud screening, hot-spot detection, and snow detection.
