About

The Day Land Cloud RGB is the same as the Natural Color RGB developed by EUMETSAT. This RGB is useful for discriminating water/ice clouds to identify low/high clouds. High ice clouds, snow, and sea ice appear cyan, while low water clouds appear dull grey or white. Land/Ocean surfaces are in expected colors (but not true color). This imagery can also be used to assess vegetation and detect land surface changes where vegetation appears green and soil, inactive vegetation, and rock appear brown to dark gray.
