CIMSS Natural True Color is a multispectral product composed of bands 1 (blue), 2 (red), and a simulated green component made by mixing 1, 2, and 3 to mimic the absent green channel. TrueColor was developed at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) and STAR's Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB).
