RGB Air Mass Quick Guide
A 2-page reference document describes the fundamental aspects of the Air Mass RGB Imagery product and it demonstrates color interpretation of the multi-channel imagery. The RGB composite is based on the EUMETSAT RGB guidelines, and these are applied using MODIS channels. The imagery is often applied to identifying jet streaks and associated areas of potential vorticity, in addition to differentiating large scale air masses. This Quick Guide style is intended to help users recall important aspects of the product and can be placed on a local intranet or a job aid sheet in operations for easy access.
