Appearance in Satellite Data

  • IR10.8: often a little bit warmer cloud tops than those associated with the Occlusion cloud, therefore light grey in the IR image, sometimes fibrous and broken
  • VIS0.8: light grey
  • WV6.2: varying from very bright to light grey
  • Airmass RGB: High reaching and a little darker clouds than the associated Occlusion cloud band.
