About Natural Color
CIMSS Natural True Color is a multispectral product composed of bands 1 (blue), 2 (red), and a generated green component made by mixing ABI spectral bands 1, 2, and 3 to mimic the absent green channel. Natural Color was developed at the CIMSS and the STAR Advanced Satellite Products Branch in Madison, WI. Because this derived product is made entirely from visible or near-infrared channels, Natural Color images are black during nighttime hours, unlike GeoColor images.
