SatFC-G: Visible and Near-IR Bands

SatFC-G: Visible and Near-IR Bands
  • Identify the ABI's two visible spectral bands, the "blue" and "red" bands, and various phenomena that can be detected in the spectral regions they cover
  • Identify one of the ABI's four near-IR spectral bands, also known as the "veggie" band, and describe how it contrasts to the two visible spectral bands
  • Identify sun glint in visible and near-IR imagery
  • Identify favored times for viewing haze, dust and smoke, and which of the visible and near-IR bands is generally more sensitive to atmospheric aerosol detection
  • Briefly state the advantage of adjusting enhancement tables in visible imagery for feature identification
