REDEVELOPMENT NOTE: The redevelopment of 'www.goes.noaa.gov' is ongoing but nearing completion! We hope to make it more accessible to our diverse users and every effort is being made to keep existing page names and content. We are removing Java 'pop-ups', adding user-friendly information, incorporating device-friendly loops, etc.
Meteorologists use color enhanced imagery as an aid in satellite interpretation. The colors enable them to easily and quickly see features which are of special interest. Usually they look for high clouds or areas with a large amount of water vapor.
In a water vapor image, white areas indicate moisture and dark areas indicate little or no moisture, so the colors typically highlight areas with large amounts of moisture.
