Meteosat Product Examples
The Airmass RGB is composed from a combination of the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) WV6.2, WV7.3, IR9.7 and IR10.8 channels. Hence, it is based upon data from infrared and water vapor channels of MSG. It is designed and tuned to monitor the evolution of cyclones, in particular rapid cyclogenesis, jet streaks and PV (potential vorticity) anomalies. Due to the incorporation of the water vapor and ozone channels, its usage at high satellite viewing angles is limited.
