RGB Nighttime Microphysics (Interactive Quick Guide)
A 2-page reference (PDF) and an “interactive” (html/5) web object describes the fundamental aspects of the Nighttime Microphysics (NtMicro) RGB Imagery product and it demonstrates color interpretation of the multi-channel imagery. The RGB is based on the internationally accepted EUMETSAT RGB “best practices” guidelines. The imagery is often applied to analyzing fog related to both aviation and public transporation hazards, but it also differentiates fog from low-level cloud features. This Quick Guide style is intended to help users recall important points from foundational training. The PDF can be printed and used as a job aid in the operations area. Both the PDF and the interactive versions can be downloaded for local use via intranet or within the user’s display system.
