This module is part of the satellite foundational course for GOES-R (SatFC-G). This particular module covers multi-channel interpretation approaches, including band differences and RGBs (Red-Blue-Green). Learning objectives include:
1. Bands on ABI, and what they are useful for.
2. How can you use multiple bands to reveal atmospheric phenomena (band differences and comparisons).
3. AWIPS capabilities for channel combinations.
4. RGBs: what are they? How are they created? What are some simple examples?
NOAA/NWS students – to begin the training, use the web-based video, YouTube video, or audio playback options below (if present for this session). Certificates of completion for NOAA/NWS employees can be obtained by accessing the session via the Commerce Learning Center.
