Satellite imagery contains much of the physical information needed for nephanalysis. However, such analysis requires skills and experience to enable interpretation and extraction of the necessary information from imagery. Red-green-blue (RGB) composite imagery can be easily created by overlapping and displaying color satellite images to present information from several satellite channels.
Note: As work on color interpretation for Himawari-8 remains ongoing, the content of this site may change in the future.
